James Baldwin on Attacking the Power Structure

Thanks to (Ne)Grow Knowledge I spent my lunch break watching this and being inspired. Can't stop thinking about attacking the power structure and my own willingness to look at my life and be responsible for it.

James Baldwin, I heart you.

Oh, also, can't really stop thinking about how much I f-ing hate Ann Rand. Where does this kind of responsibility fall in your Objectivist theory Ms. Rand?


  1. If you want to go to the opening night of "Atlas Shrugged" with me with "Rand Was Wrong" t-shirts, just say the word.

  2. Agreed, on both points. Especially the last one. Good god I hate Ayn Rand. I always remember that story about how she screamed after a departing lover, "Wait - this isn't REASONABLE." It's so whiny and entitled and also clueless about the fact that other people exist with their own set of rights, and that, to me, is your typical objectivist.
