Daily(ish) Ayn Rand Quote

Posted by jemartynowski on March 12, 2009

So you think that money is the root of all evil?” said Francisco d’Anconia. “Have you ever asked what is the root of money? Money is a tool of exchange, which can’t exist unless there are goods produced and men able to produce them. Money is the material shape of the principle that men who wish to deal with one another must deal by trade and give value for value. Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears, or of the looters, who take it from you by force. Money is made possible only by the men who produce. Is this what you consider evil?

-Francisco’s money speech from Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand

With people like Bernard Madoff and pretty much all of Barack Obama’s appointees running around, people are starting to throw the “money is the root of all evil” quote around.  The beginning of Francisco’s speech here makes me feel all excited.  It makes me say, “YEAH!” every time I read it.  Money is actually the symbol of freedom and advancement, not coercion and slavery.  Eat it, socialists.

    Your blog is so darn good, I will have to add it to the blogroll. Also, I try to round up my favourite capitalist blog posts every now and then (just getting started, we’ll see if I ever get anywhere with it), would you mind me linking you every now and then under the banner of the Capitalist Blog Revolution?

    Best Regards,

    hpx,
    I would be proud to join your Capitalist Blog Revolution. Also, I would like to add your blog to my blogroll, if that’s OK with you. I love the links you provide and info I get from yours.
    Thanks!

    Feel free to link! And there is no need to “join”, you’re already in it 🙂

    I am doing the whole blog roundup for two reasons mainly,

    1 ) Spread good, sound opinions over the web

    2 ) As an experiment to see how much power one can harness from the so called “social forums” on the internet.

    Time will tell if it is successful or not, I have noted a rather weird correlation between the state of the economy and success of my blog 😉

      You’re right about the state of the economy. I think, also, that every time our government makes another step toward socialism, I see a big spike.

    Good afternoon

    how fast a site is gaining links

    don’t stop there, also submit your site to the countless other smaller search engines on the web.

    Keyword rich articles are some of the best examples of this method, placing them on high PR sites will filter Google traffic through these articles onto your site.

    All these keyword phrases will add up to a flood of traffic for your site.

    use goowal.com it is your only hope
