"When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission
from men who produce nothing; when you see that money is flowing to
those who deal not in goods, but in favors; when you see that men get
rich more easily by graft than by work, and your laws no longer protect
you against them, but protect them against you… you may know that your
society is doomed." … Ayn Rand

Rand was a crackpot. Ironic that the words of someone - notable in the degree to which she excelled at producing nothing - are used today to defend those who proudly produce nothing, and criticize those who do all the work.
