Ayn Rand April Fools Thought for the Day

This quote from Ayn Rand seems highly appropriate in this day and age. Our stock markets, even after a great March, remain down by nearly half their peak levels due in large part to what Ayn Rand warns against.
"When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion -- when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - when you see money flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - when you see that men get richer by graft and pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you - when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice - you may know that your society is doomed."
Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged (1957)
