When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion--when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing--when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors--when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you--when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice--you may know that your society is doomed. - Ayn Rand

Ayn Rand said many astute things, but sane, she was not. She wrote bodice-tuggers for budding sociopaths and exalted persecution into misshapen, bitter aggrandizement. Selfishness=Virtue was her contribution to philosophy - she left behind a surfeit of self-indicting stuff.
