  1. Think I may be starting to go off Veitch a tad… the above video begins to show his ignorance unfortunately, as he equates the bank bailouts with communism and slates statist / socialist ideals (which he also equates, incorrectly) as being the biggest enemy of freedom, while bigging up Ayn Rand of all people. For fucks sake.

    “the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute” Rand

    Then he starts extolling the virtues of the free market and having a go at unions and collectivism. Doesn’t he see that free market capitalism is the problem and not the cure?

    Where’s you’re social conscience now, Charlie? Are you fighting for the people or just yourself? Has this vendetta against authoritarianism just been a yellow jacket of rebellion, shouting from the rooftops “I’m here! It’s ME! I’M going to do what I want! No one is going to tell ME what to do! The police are stupid! I’m a heroic being! Everyone look at ME!!” – rather than a real fight against oppression, social control and exploitation.

    If this kind of individualism leads you down the path to Libertarian Conservatism, and off on a road to the right, I’ll just stick with being a dirty pinko thanks!

    You’re starting to show your privilege, Charlie.

    Disappointing.

    • Well said dude, anyone who bigs up ayn rand is entering the realms of enemy in my book.

  2. “Rand’s particular genius has always been her ability to turn upside down traditional hierarchies and recast the wealthy, the talented, and the powerful as the oppressed” Mother Jones

    Rand has had a big influence on the Neo-Cons and on the ethos of modern Wall Street economics. Her support for the selfish pursuit of personal gain and unregulated markets has lead us to this latest failure of capitalism, which has, as usual, hit the poor hardest.

    Do some fucking reading Charlie and work out who’s side your on.
