The Culmination of Our Morality of Self-Sacrifice is Barack Obama but What We Need is a JOHN GALT
Do you ever ask yourself why we are always asked to sacrifice for this, sacrifice for that, in ever escalating demands? Has it ever occurred to you that it's a great way to control us? Obama is the result of this morality of sacrificial lambs at the alter of the poor, the needy, the planet, the bears, the atmosphere etc. But have we ever asked why we had to sacrifice ourself for everybody else and for everything else on this earth? The famous literary character, John Galt, warned us 50 years ago that it was this morality of self-sacrifice that was destroying the world and that we needed to discover a new morality- the morality of living by holding "three things as the supreme and ruling values of ones life: Reason - purpose - and self-esteem." (For The New Intellectual by Ayn Rand).
