Let me illustrate: Take the poorest person in this room. If the community had provideda system of doing justice the poorest person in this room would have as good a lawyer asthe richest, would he not? When you went into court you would have just as long a trial,and just as fair a trial as the richest person in Chicago. Your case would not be tried infifteen or twenty minutes, whereas it would take fifteen days to get through with a richman’s case.

A great many people will tell you that all this is true, but that it does not excuseyou. These facts do not excuse some fellow who reaches into my pocket and takes out a fivedollar bill; the fact that the gas company bribes the members of the legislature from yearto year, and fixes the law, so that all you people are compelled to be “fleeced”whenever you deal with them; the fact that the street car companies and the gas companieshave control of the streets and the fact that the landlords own all the earth, they say,has nothing to do with you.

Duke, Chinese Culture/Economics

Before I learned about Duke, I had made up my mind to study economics and to ultimately pursue a career in international business. I had come to see this path as the best combination for fulfilling both my aspirations towards knowledge and my pragmatic goals of a future livelihood. China, my planned area of focus, is an expanding market with a dearth of skilled business professionals. But I had misgivings because I wanted a school with a strong focus on the humanities as well.

There are more people go to jail in hard times than in good times — few peoplecomparatively go to jail except when they are hard up. They go to jail because they haveno other place to go. They may not know why, but it is true all the same. People are notmore wicked in hard times. That is not the reason. The fact is true all over the worldthat in hard times more people go to jail than in good times, and in winter more people goto jail than in summer.

When times are hard then you find large numbers ofpeople who go to jail who would not otherwise be in jail.

Hayek's "intentionalistic fallacy." Nevertheless, one is left with the impression that Rand and her "Objectivist" successors do commit Hayek's "fatal conceit" by supposing that heroic characters will exercise a superrationalistic control over themselves and the economy, and that capitalism is not really a way of coping with ignorance, or with knowledge.

Few writers convey an irresistible ferocity of convictions as Rand does.

He might at least have read magazines.

When a California law professor goes to Cuba and finds "ecotopia," precisely because of the poverty into which Communism has plunged the country, we have a very curious reversal on the failures of Communism and a striking point of alliance between environmentalists and unreconstructed Communists.

A careful reading of Rand dispels that idea, but her rhetoric works against a good understanding.

People who casually toss around ideas about what should and should not be in society, or about how much of people's income should be taxed, or what restrictions should be put on property rights, often don't seem to be aware that they are talking about sending men with guns, the police, against people who don't agree with such dispositions and who may not be willing to comply with them.

That makes it sound like the free market works just because such supermen exist to control it.

The men redirected their carriages down another road and spied him.

Because of the activity, I have learned that from education to communication, from argument to enlightenment, debate is necessary for two or more humans to transcend mere exchange of thought and achieve synergy instead. I now view success in debate as far more than a trophy; I now see it as evidence that I can successfully communicate my beliefs to others and have them logically accept them as their own, thus priming me for any future challenges involving human interaction.
