QuickyPinion: What the Term Liberty Means in Neoliberalism and Libertarianism

It means that only those at the top should be free. Absolutely free, at that — allowed to do anything they wish regardless of the consequences for others. That it is the Ayn Rand “philosophy” (if you want to call sociopathy a philosophy) which has been repackaged and resold within these two labels (sort of like Pepsi and Coke).

Even though people of these convictions purport to be paragons of liberty, they actually undermine the American ideal of liberty and justice for all. One has to always ask them: freedom for whom? Hannibal Lecter and the billionaires?

P.S.: Here on Beanstock’s World you can always improve your vocabulary with which to talk about the corrupticians and their corporate masters.

BTW, if yesterday’s 4th of July post was not enough, The Revolution Continues posted some moving texts and themes for our “Independence” Day and also raised the idea of Bastille Day. Highly recommendable. 😉

  1. Ayn Rand idolized a child serial killer. She thought he was the most “free” human being ever because he didn’t care what people thought of his curious bent. That’s all you need to know about anyone who idolizes her and names their kids after her.
