Atlas Shrugged Quote of the Week

“The source of property rights is the law of causality.  All property and all forms of wealth are produced by man’s mind and labor.  As you cannot have effects without causes, so you cannot have wealth without its source: without intelligence.  You cannot force intelligence to work: those who’re able to think, will not work under compulsion; those who will, won’t produce much more than the price of the whip needed to keep them enslaved.  You cannot obtain the products of a mind except on the owner’s terms, by trade and by volitional consent.  Any other policy of men toward men’s property is the policy of criminals, no matter what their numbers.  Criminals are savages who play it short-range and starve when their prey runs out – just as you’re starving today, you who believed that crime should be ‘practical’ if your government decreed that robbery was legal and resistance to robbery illegal.

“The only proper purpose of a government is to protect man’s rights, which means: to protect him from physical violence.  A proper government is only a policemen, acting as an agent of man’s self-defense, and, as such, may resort to force only against those who start the use of force.  The only proper functions of a government are: the police, to protect you from criminals; the army, to protect you from foreign invaders; and the courts, to protect your property and contracts from breach of fraud by others, to settle disputes by rational rules, according to objective law.  But a government that initiates the employment of force against men who had forced no one, the employment of armed compulsion against disarmed victims, is a nightmare infernal machine designed to annihilate morality: such a government reverses its only moral purpose and switches from the role of a protector to the role of man’s deadliest enemy, from the role of policeman to the role of a criminal vested with the right to the wielding of violence against victims deprived of the right of self-defense.  Such a government substitutes for morality the following rule of social conduct: you may do whatever you please to your neighbor, provided you gang is bigger than his.” – John Galt
