I was reading Ayn Rands book in Iraq. And I think that she neglected the fact the military is an altruistic instition, but a neccessary one at that. With out the military the country that we know would not exist. So basically if anyone agrees or disargees with me on this I would like to know your opinion and thoughts. I think this is her weakest link, and as far as I can tell with her all encompassing philisophy this seems to be its widest gap. Because nations cant co exist without militaries plan and simple. Unless of course you believe in Utopian society in which we can live in peace. Which that too seem inconceivable. But dont misunderstand me I like Ayn Rand and her philosphies and they have helped me develop my own life. Despite working for the military.
