"Rulers of men are not egoists. They create nothing. They exist entirely through the persons of others. Their goal is in their subjects, in the activity of enslaving. They are as dependent as the beggar, the social worker and the bandit. The form of the dependence does not matter."

          ~ Ayn Rand on 'The Soul of the Individualist,' from her novel The Fountainhead
