Ayn Rand relevant today

Charleston Daily Mail - Ayn Rand relevant today, speaker says :
"Yaron Brook makes you stop and think.
Like when he says, 'I'd like to abolish Social Security. Talk about a pyramid scheme! The only difference between Social Security and Bernie Madoff is, you're forced to participate in this pyramid scheme.
'I talk about Social Security in moral terms,' Brook said. 'If you didn't have Social Security, you would have responsible, rational people who would save and earn much more than they do with Social Security. And you would have an irresponsible group that wouldn't save. Social Security is a welfare program for irresponsible people, and that's what it should be called.'"
