Quote of the Day: The two fundamental questions that determine the nature of any social system


"There are only two fundamental questions (or two aspects of the same question) that determine the nature of any social system: Does a social system recognise individual rights? -- and: Does a social system ban physical force from human relationships? The answer to the second question is the practical implementation of the answer to the first."
~ Ayn Rand, on Social Systems
