Upbeat Cynicism

Quote of the day

Everybody seems to agree that civilization is facing a crisis, but nobody cares to define its nature, to discover its cause and to assume the responsibility of formulating a solution. In times of danger, a morally healthy culture rallies its values, its self-esteem and its crusading spirit to fight for its moral ideals with full, rightesou confidence. But this is not what we see today. If we ask our intellectual leaders what are the ideals we should fight for, their answer is such a sticky puddle of stale syrup — of benevolent bromides and apologetic generalities about brother love, global progress and universal prosperity at America’s expense — that a fly would not die for it or in it.

— Ayn Rand, For The New Intellectual
