An Ayn Rand Christmas

Someone with nothing better to do has taken a bunch of Ayn Rand quotes and made them into Christmas cards. In a way they're funny because of the stark contrast between her diabolical social Darwinism and the kind of thoughts we normally associate with Christmas.

Until you remember that many of our politicians, including people like Paul Ryan, the speaker of the house, and people like former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan, are followers of this woman and spend all their time figuring out how to translate her philosophy into innocuous sound bytes designed to disarm our natural revulsion at the naked lust for money and power so they can implement it as public policy.

  1. Ha! Great card, in a perverse sort of way.
    Hope your holiday is a good one, it's rather snowy and nippy here in Montana.
