“Society has the right and the need to safeguard its interests against an injurious assertion of individuality.” – J.A. Hobson
Sorry, Ayn Rand, but Mr. Hobson is right. O, but that we had heeded his advice at the Fed instead of embracing hers! O, but if only Greenspan had been a devotee of Hobson instead of a disciple of Rand! Alas, but that is what a good government should do: protect society from the injurious assertions of individuality.
