Description
The foundations of capitalism are being battered by a flood of altruism, which is the cause of the modern world's collapse. This is the view of Ayn Rand, a view so radically opposed to prevailing attitudes that it constitutes a major philosophic revolution. In this series of essays, she presents her stand on the persecution of big business, the causes of war, the default of conservatism, and the evils of altruism. Here is a challenging new look at modern society by one of the most provocative intellectuals on the American scene. 'One of the most revolutionary and powerful works on capitalism-and on politics-that has ever been published.' - Professor Leonard Peikoff, Barron's magazine This edition includes two articles by Ayn Rand which did not appear in the hardcover edition- The Wreckage of the Consensus,' which presents the Objectivists views on Vietnam and the draft; and Requiem for Man,' an answer to the Papal encyclical Progresso Populorum .
