Una Reflexión de Ayn Rand

Ayn Rand (1950)
Cuando adviertas que para producir necesitas obtener autorización de quienes no producen nada; cuando compruebes que el dinero fluye hacia quienes no trafican con bienes sino con favores; cuando percibas que muchos se hacen ricos por el soborno y por influencias más que por su trabajo, y que las leyes no te protegen contra ellos sino, por el contrario, son ellos los que están protegidos contra tí; cuando descubras que la corrupción es recompensada y la honradez se convierte en un auto-sacrificio, entonces podrás afirmar, sin temor a equivocarte, que tu sociedad está condenada."
