    No.

    We made obligations through legal means.

    Those obligations must be honored, both morally and Constitutionally.

    I support Obama going so far as coining sufficient coinage to cover all lawful debts.

    (PS - I am not an Objectivist any longer. more of an objectivist philosophically (small o) and a utilitarian ethically.)

    •  No they don't. Did Francisco d'Anconia honor (0+ / 0-)

      his legal obligations or did he blow up the docks?  Did the others honor their obligations or did they deliberately cause crippling disasters (most likely killing thousands if not more) to ensure the takers couldn't have any of it before going Galt?

        Another non-book reader I see.

        In the novel no one is injured in any of the incidents, all workers having been evacuated prior to the actions.

        And since when is one not free to dispose of ones own property as they see fit? Much less resist letting others dispose of it for you?

        •  That is only because he didn't have dead (0+ / 0-)

          peasant's insurance on his workers otherwise it would have been in his best interest not to evacuate.

          And how is that any different than what the Tea Party supports?  After all, those dollars are mine so if I want to do everything I can to cause a default which will devalue them before they are stolen from me to give to those takers on social security, medicaid, and food stamps why am I not justified in doing so?  Or even hacking into the government's systems and shutting down those payments?
