Yaron Brook shares with students Ayn Rand´s perspective on law and the common government intervention towards this regard. According to Rand’s thinking, the real purpose of law is to protect liberty and the individual, hence rejecting the notion of these two, law and government, joined in the pursuit of a societal good. He discusses several aspects of rules, state, and society to convey the importance of the well-being of the individual, advocating the objectivism views on what is considered to be the fundamental right, as is the right to life, from which derive the right to liberty and to property, as well. Other topics arise, such as intellectual property, monopolies, force and reason, all which are explained and aligned to the objectivism movement.
