Ayn Rand's first appearance on Johnny Carson: Hardly entertainment! Ha!Submitted by JohnPhillipSousa on Fri, 09/07/2012 - 12:10
17 solid minutes of AR talking about "Objectivism", defense of Capitalism, Free Markets, Morality of Individual Rights, Right to Privacy, WAR...
Then there's Johnny Carson's attentive interest in the subject, as opposed to the person. That's rare. Hardly entertaining on a show that exists solely for entertainment—not serious idealogical types.
Notice the explosion of applause when she talks about undeclared wars, inscription, and the unconstitutionality of undeclared wars.
She also says her views, in the future, would be the norm. I think she was right. When Ayn came to this country we were already in the grips of communism which of course, she made a career of warning us about.
