A Conversation about the Book “Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand’s Ideas Can End Big Government”

New Media  | 06 de agosto de 2013  | Vistas: 14

Yaron Brook is interviewed on his book Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand's Ideas Can End Big Government, as he sheds light on the understanding and acceptance of selfishness as a virtue instead of a flaw, as the first step to reduce big government. He comments on what the protective role of government should really be about, and explains several terms, in order to fully grasp Rand's view of rational self-interest, such as capitalism, morality, altruism, and statism and their relation to the individual.

To accomplish the ending of big government, he calls for a revolution of ideas and to adopt the free market thinking to slowly but firmly eliminate the wrong intrusion of this figure.
