Quote of the Day – Ayn Rand on Supporting Freedom

Swapping back to Ayn Rand’s “Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal” for a bit, and came across this quote on upholding freedom.

If one upholds freedom, one must uphold man’s individual rights; if one upholds man’s individual rights, one must uphold his right to his own life, to his own liberty, to the pursuit of his own happiness–which means: one must uphold a political system that guarantees and protects these rights–which means: the politico-economic system of capitalism.

Sadly, few politicians in Washington, or elsewhere, actually uphold freedom.
