Quote of the Day: On the breach just keeps getting more visible…

 

"One the paradoxes of our age is the fact that the intellectuals, the politicians and all the sundry voices that choke, like asthma, the throat of our communication media have never gasped and stuttered so loudly about …the people’s will as the supreme criterion of value – and never have they been so grossly indifferent to the people…
    “The most profound breach [today] is not between the rich and the poor, but between the people and the intellectuals."
 
~ Ayn Rand in 'Apollo and Dionysus'
