According to the Ayn Rand Institute’s Don Watkins and Yaron Brook, (ari.aynrand.org ) authors of the upcoming book, “Equal Is Unfair: America’s Misguided Fight Against Income Inequality,” what’s stifling opportunity in America is not income inequality, but political equality. Instead of the government protecting our equal rights, it is granting some people special privileges and shackling others with special burdens.

“On the Students for Liberty website, Weeks identifies her ‘favorite figures in liberty’ as Ayn Rand, economist Milton Friedman, and two other activists whose careers have included both sex and politics…”

An amused tipster drew our attention to a debate that UNC Law School is hosting next week: “Inequality: Fair or Unfair?”

You guys, am I missing something? It seems, definitionally, there is only one right answer.

Of course there are actually two poor souls that actually have to go through the motions for this debate:

“The debate will feature our own Professor William Marshall and Dr. Yaron Brook, Executive Director of the Ayn Rand Institute.”

Should have known, obviously the Objectivist will be arguing inequality is fair. Of course Brook also says global warming is “another in a line of failed scare stories,” so maybe take what he says with a grain of salt.

Bernard C. Piqochet alias Paul Ribbeck (oder vielleicht sind das auch zwei Personen) ist auf den ersten Blick ein unvorsichtiger Mitarbeiter eines US-Thinktanks. Er schaffte es allem Anschein nach nicht, zu verschleiern, dass er die Internet-Domain angemeldet hat, auf der seit wenigen Tagen dazu aufgerufen wird, illegale Einwanderer ebenso illegal mit Privatautos nach Deutschland oder Österreich zu bringen. Der Mann ist demnach für das Ayn Rand Institute tätig, das in den USA ganz andere Ziele verfolgt. Möglicherweise ist das alles aber auch nur ein Verwirrspiel ganz anderer Kräfte.

Yaron Brook, who heads the Ayn Rand Institute, is my foil in the Dream debate.

Brook takes the premise of government as the source of all evils to an instructive extreme. Thus the financial collapse of 2008, weirdly, was not the result of Wall Street financial engineering but of government regulation (don’t ask).

…a number of historic female names have been floated as potential replacements for Jackson’s face on the $20 bill. One notable name was the “Godess of the Market,” author and free market champion Ayn Rand.

“How do we take a country that’s so collectivistic in its core and … how do you turn it into an individualistic country that respects its Jewishness but at the end of the day the individual is sacred and the individual is the supreme value?” asked Yaron Brook, president and executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute who traveled from the U.S. to Israel for the conference that was organized jointly by the Israeli Freedom Movement and Israel’s Ayn Rand Center.

Many of those who came said they look to the U.S. for inspiration and hope they can be of support to their ideological allies across the ocean…

Yaron Brook, Director Ejecutivo del Instituto Ayn Rand, coautor del libro Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand’s Ideas Can End Big Government, inició su intervención agradeciendo la invitación a la Sede Nacional de Uniandinos. Brook se refirió a la definición de Capitalismo en la actualidad, «es el sistema de la propiedad privada y el gobierno no interviene en la economía», explicó. Sin embargo, sobre el tema en discusión invitó a los participantes a responder una pregunta «¿Qué sucede con el Capitalismo que no queremos aceptarlo?», y posterior a ello, explicó cómo es posible que el problema de aceptar el capitalismo en la sociedad tenga que ver con la concepción de ética que los individuos tienen y que ven amenazada por este sistema.

For a clear-eyed reminder of the real character of communism and its role in shaping the government of today’s China, PJTV turns to Marion Smith, of the Victims of Communism Foundation. More insight comes from Yaron Brook of the Ayn Rand Institute, who argues that China today is more fascist than communist, and who along the way explains why evil comes of a system in which the imperative is not equality of rights, but equality of outcome.
