A Plan To Fail?

"The John Galt Plan...will reconcile all conflicts. It will protect the property of the rich and give a greater share to the poor. It will cut down the burden of your taxes and provide you with more government benefits. It will lower prices and raise wages. It will give more freedom to the individual and strengthen the bonds of collective obligations. It will combine the efficiency of free enterprise with the generosity of a planned economy...

Tomorrow is here today-and what a tomorrow! With three meals a day for everyone on earth, with a car in every garage , and with electric power given for free, produced by some sort of a motor the like of which we've never seen! And all you have to do is be patient a little while longer!"

It would almost be funny, if it wasn't happening to us.
