Upbeat Cynicism

Quote of the moment

“You want me to be the Economic Dictator?”

“Yes!”

“And you’ll obey any order I give?”

“Implicitly!”

“Then start by abolishing all income taxes.”

“Oh, no!” screamed Mr. Thompson, leaping to his feet. “We couldn’t do that! That’s… that’s not the field of production. That’s the field of distribution. How would we pay government employees?”

“Fire your government employees.”

“Oh, no! That’s politics! That’s not economics! You can’t interfere with politics! You can’t have everything!”

[…] “Want to continue the discussion, or do you get the point?”

— Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
