Ron Paul “debates” Paul Krugman in this video. I put debates in quotations because Paul Krugman is such a weaseling, intellectually and morally bankrupt scumbag it would be unjust to actually call this a “debate”, as if the individual men and ideas involved were in any way equals and equally valid ideas.
Paul Krugram is in fact a modern day, and real life Ellsworth Toohey (the villain of Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead). He is the man who has betrayed his own soul 100 times over, who hates the good in the world so much he attacks the good, for being good.
Paul Krugman is a man who has committed the highest moral and intellectual treason. He is a man who you could accurately call, in the 21st century, a “malicious scoundrel”.
And like Ellsworth Toohey, he is particularly good at manipulating and twisting everything little thing he can get his hands on.
I sincerely hope this man trips and breaks his own neck.
(Skip to 1 minute 5 seconds to get to the interview).
Do not confuse altruism with kindness, good will or respect for the rights of others. These are not primaries, but consequences, which, in fact, altruism makes impossible. The irreducible primary of altruism, the basic absolute is self-sacrifice–which means self-immolation, self-abnegation, self-denial self-destruction–which means the self as a standard of evil, the selfless as a standard of the good. Do not hide behind such superficialities as whether you should or should not give a dime to a beggar. This is not the issue. The issue is whether you do or do not have the right to exist without giving him that dime. The issue is whether you must keep buying your life, dime by dime, from any beggar who might choose to approach you. The issue is whether the need of others is the first mortgage on your life and the moral purpose of your existence. The issue is whether man is to be regarded as a sacrificial animal. Any man of self-esteem will answer: No. Altruism says: Yes.
