  1. On a side note, I like what happened to Hitchens, from Chomsky's lapdog to key neo-con in 5 years.
  2. In AS and FH Rand seems to make the arguement that political action is not needed as the nature of political evil is illusory - it exists soley at our consent and is not self sustaining. How did Rand, and the early movement of the 60s see political/cultural action? Was a system like Marxism defined showing the enemy's nature, his end, and a utopia?

In my mind the "Law" was about the steps mankind needed to take to reach a godly life where the possibility of sin would not be realised and mankind would be free to live a good life, free of theft, murder, etc. Christians (at least most of the Protestant variety) hold the veiw that the Jewish religion is bound by a set of command
