Ayn Rand and the Perforated Rectum
Ayn Rand doesn’t like taxes.
That’s awesome. It’s awesome but a bit disturbing—partly because it would be perfect for Ayn Rand’s dream world in The Fountainhead because of excludability:
In economics, a good or service is said to be excludable when it is possible to prevent people who have not paid for it from having access to it, and non-excludable when it is not possible to do so.
I come from New York City, home of the most famous public park in the world, Central Park. I’d be damned if I’m going to live in a world where I have to pay $0.70 to keep from getting a perforated rectum.
