The Ultimate Inversion

Ayn Rand - Inversion
We Are Fast Approaching The Stage Of The Ultimate Inversion

The fearsome but wise words come from Ayn Rand’s essay, “The Nature Of Government” which is enclosed within The Virtue of Selfishness and, while they were written decades ago, they hold a bitter truth even today. Indeed, it may well be that Rand’s words are more true today than they were some 50 years ago when she penned them.

America does seem to be fast approaching the stage where the government can do or refuse to do whatever it wishes while we, the People must beg its permission for any action or even inaction that we would contemplate undertaking.

Remember, while it is true that men can only govern by the consent of the governed, to rule only requires brute force and a willingness to use. As America’s government seems to no longer care about our consent, how long will it be before they take power and rule through open force?
