Ayn Rand was an idiot.

I will address no more of your reply to my post than this...
Since you have chosen to "inject your own words" into my statement, and call them mine, I count no more of your statements worth consideration, review or comment.
I am glad you take such a cynical view on humanity. [Way] to discount all the doctors, researchers, and lawyers who have chosen those fields for the greater good.
You call yourself (the reincarnation/s of) God, Jesus, Solomon, etc... ?
Can't even deal honorably with another (mere) human...?
and nothing in my statement implied such a sentiment.
Who would be 'cynical about humanity'... more ...than one who falsely accuses others of thoughts, intents and words...to deceitfully further an argument?

communism with a way to control cronyism and greed is pretty much a perfect plan. The human nature aspect corrupts it, but not near as bad as capitalism.
Imagine honest communism with free college. The smartest students get the career choices at the higher spectrum and the best schools to enable them to fly high. Such as surgeons, doctors, scientists, etc. No way no how should some spoiled rich under achiever be allowed into the top echelon schools.
Having people free to choose the career field of their choice without having to consider the disgusting aspect of "i want to be something that pays good" of " Im gonna be a so and so because they make bank".. Not good.
There are many people that have talents and dreams that go into something OTHER than their passion due to the salary in their desired career. I have met so many unhappy people that waste away doing something they HATE just because it pays better. And I have met many others who after decades of doing something they hated, change careers into following their dreams. And they are happier.
There is no way in H-E-!-! that some banker should have a better paycheck than an elementary school teacher. Being exposed to young minds is an honor and should be respected.
Just like no trust fund baby should have more money than 20 blue collar honest workers. Not at ALL>
