Francisco’s Money Speech from Atlas Shrugged should be required reading in school

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn (rhymes with “pine”) Rand is over 1,000 pages of fiction based on the idea of the United States government taking over the infrastructure of America and basically making all the decisions for “the greater good.”   Sounds familiar, huh?

You may not read much or find it hard to fit into a schedule packed full of family activities, work, and whatever else you do.  There is an excerpt from the book available on the website for Capitalism Magazine.  It’s called “Francisco’s Money Speech” and you can read it by clicking on this link. It will take about 7-8 minutes and then you’ll want to read it again and maybe share it.  This speech is a good summation of the central theme of the book.

  1. Broken link 😦


    • Terra:

      Very sorry for the broken link; had not checked it in a while. I did find the same excerpt on the Capitalism website so I fixed the link; it works now.

      Thanks for taking the time to point this out to me, as well. If you would like a free spiral-bound notebook with lyrics to “Tread Not On Me”, it’s yours. I’m going to record it soon. No sweat if you don’t want it too.

      Take care,
