Jump to: navigation, search

"Independence is the recognition of the fact that your is the responsibility of judgment and nothing can help you escape your life -- that the vilest form of self-abasement and self-destruction is the subordination of your mind to the mind of another, the acceptance of an authority over your brain, the acceptance of his assertion as facts, his say-so as truth, his edicts as middle-man between your consciousness and your existence." [Ayn Rand, Galt's Speech in Atlas Shrugged]
