[Quote No.42765] Need Area: Mind > General
"Man's mind is his basic tool of survival. Life is given to him, survival is not. His body is given to him, sustenance is not. His mind is given to him, its content [attitudes, skills, knowledge] is not. To remain alive, he must act, and before he can act, he must know the nature and purpose of his action. He cannot obtain his food without a knowledge of food and of the way to obtain it. He cannot dig a ditch - or build a cyclotron - without a knowledge of his aim and of the means to achieve it [a dream-goal and a plan]. To remain alive [grow and evolve as an individual along with society], he must think [and choose and so skill using his mind is critical to the quality and quantity of his life as well as that of those he loves and society as a whole]." - Ayn Rand

"[Self-defence and martial arts:] ...no man [or woman] has the right to seek values from others by means of physical force – i.e. no man [woman] or group has the right to initiate the use of physical force against others.

Men [and women] have the right to use force only in self-defense and only against those who initiate its use. Men [and women] must deal with one another as traders, giving value for value, by free, mutual consent to mutual benefit. The only social system that bars physical force from human relationships is laissez-faire capitalism. Capitalism is a system based on the recognition of individual rights, including property rights, in which the only function of the government is to protect individual rights, i.e. to protect men [and women] from those who initiate the use of physical force. [Therefore I reject]...any form of collectivism, such as fascism or socialism...also...the current ‘mixed economy’ notion that government should regulate the economy and redistribute wealth [by taxing one group excessively in order to give to another more politically favoured group]." - Ayn Rand

[Quote No.41385] Need Area: Property > General
"The essential characteristic of socialism is the denial of individual property rights; under socialism, the right to property (which is the right of use and disposal) is vested in ‘society as a whole,’ i.e., in the collective, with production and distribution controlled by the state, i.e., by the government. Socialism may be established by force, as in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics — or by vote, as in Nazi (National Socialist) Germany. The degree of socialization may be total, as in Russia — or partial, as in England." - Ayn Rand
(1905 – 1982), born Alisa Zinov'yevna Rosenbaum, she was a Russian-American novelist, philosopher, playwright, and screenwriter. She is known for her two best-selling novels ‘The Fountainhead’ and ‘Atlas Shrugged’ and for developing a philosophical system she called Objectivism. In politics, she condemned the initiation of force as immoral and opposed all forms of collectivism and statism, instead supporting laissez-faire capitalism, which she believed was the only social system that protected individual rights. The Objectivist movement attempts to spread her ideas, both to the public and in academic settings. She is a major influence among libertarians and American conservatives. Quote from her essay ‘The Monument Builders', in her book, 'The Virtue of Selfishness'. [refer http://aynrandlexicon.com/ ]

[Quote No.41386] Need Area: Property > General
"When you consider socialism [which does not believe in individual property rights], do not fool yourself about its nature. Remember that there is no such dichotomy as ‘human rights’ versus ‘property rights.’ No human rights can exist without property rights. Since material goods are produced by the mind and effort of individual men, and are needed to sustain their lives, if the producer does not own the result of his effort, he does not own his life. To deny property rights means to turn men into property owned by the state. Whoever claims the ‘right’ to ‘redistribute’ the wealth produced by others is claiming the ‘right’ to treat human beings as chattel." - Ayn Rand

[Quote No.41389] Need Area: Property > General
"Both ‘socialism’ and ‘fascism’ involve the issue of property rights. The right to property is the right of use and disposal. Observe the difference in those two theories: socialism negates private property rights altogether, and advocates ‘the vesting of ownership and control’ in the community as a whole, i.e., in the state; fascism leaves ownership in the hands of private individuals, but transfers control of the property to the government. Ownership without control is a contradiction in terms: it means ‘property,’ without the right to use it or to dispose of it. It means that the citizens retain the responsibility of holding property, without any of its advantages, while the government acquires all the advantages without any of the responsibility. In this respect, socialism is the more honest of the two theories. I say ‘more honest,’ not ‘better’ — because, in practice, there is no difference between them: both come from the same collectivist - statist principle, both negate individual rights and subordinate the individual to the collective, both deliver the livelihood and the lives of the citizens into the power of an omnipotent government — and the differences between them are only a matter of time, degree, and superficial detail, such as the choice of slogans by which the rulers delude their enslaved subjects." - Ayn Rand

[Quote No.43624] Need Area: Property > General
"The difference between [socialism and fascism] is superficial and purely formal, but it is significant psychologically: it brings the authoritarian nature of a planned economy crudely into the open. The main characteristic of socialism (and of communism) is public ownership of the means of production, and, therefore, the abolition of private property. The right to property is the right of use and disposal. Under fascism, men retain the semblance or pretense of private property, but the government holds total power over its use and disposal." - Ayn Rand
(1905 - 1982), author. Quote from her article, 'The Fascist New Frontier,' The Ayn Rand Column, p.98.

Under socialism, government officials acquire all the advantages of ownership, without any of the responsibilities, since they do not hold title to the property, but merely the right to use it - at least until the next purge. In either case, the government officials hold the economic, political and legal power of life or death over the citizens." - Ayn Rand

"[Private property, including the ownership of the 'self', is the basis of individual responsibility and free market capitalism. Property cannot be owned by individuals according to the Communist ideology. Property can be owned by individuals but not controlled under fascist and socialist political ideologies.] Under fascism, citizens retain the responsibilities of owning property, without freedom to act and without any of the advantages of ownership. Under socialism, government officials acquire all the advantages of ownership, without any of the responsibilities, since they do not hold title to the property, but merely the right to use it -- at least until the next purge. In either case, the government officials hold the economic, political and legal power of life or death over the citizens." - Ayn Rand
(1905-1982), philosopher and author. Source: 'The Fascist New Frontier', The Ayn Rand Column, p.98.
