Quote of the afternoon: Is a heavy concentration of industry destructive to human life?

"If it were true that a heavy concentration of industry is destructive to human
life, one would find life expectancy declining in the more advanced countries. But
it has been rising steadily… Anyone over 30 years of age today, give a silent
'Thank you' to the nearest, grimiest, sootiest smokestacks you can find."
- Ayn Rand, from her article “The Anti-Industrial Revolution
