The Surgeon Dr. Thomas Hendricks Speaks Out In ATLAS SHRUGGED

"I have often wondered at the smugness at which people assert their right to enslave me, to control my work, to force my will, to violate my conscience, to stifle my mind — yet what is it they expect to depend on, when they lie on an operating table under my hands? … Let them discover the kind of doctors that their system will now produce. Let them discover, in the operating rooms and hospital wards, that it is not safe to place their lives in the hands of a man they have throttled. It is not safe, if he is the sort of man who resents it — and still less safe, if he is the sort who doesn’t." Surgeon, Dr. Thomas Hendricks in "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand.

Listen to Yaron Brooks from The Ayn Rand Institute and Terry Jones from Investor's Business Daily defending the philosophic basis for a revolution for Individualism and not the idea that we are our brother's keeper.

One of many truly great lines in the book!

We give out Atlas Shrugged as part of the self-defense kit at The Lucidicus Project. See
