Lying is a selfish virtue, more on the farce

And of course, Alan Greenspan, who was part of Ayn Rand's inner circle, did exactly the same thing with the federal reserve. He lied to get the office, said he was for the gold standard, and created the biggest bubble in history.

Another example of lying to gain something. Not in *your* self interest, but in the liars self interest. Not mutual interest like in The Driver where the line was plagiarized from. Plagiarism isn't in the mutual interest of the plagiarizer and the person/people you are plagiarizing from and to.

The character you are quoting, Francisco D Anconias, is the one that said in the book he is coming to town to see "the farce" he created. Francisco is also the character that said that Atlas was from the greek legend who carried the weight of the world. Atlas in the Greek legend was carrying the weight of the celestial heavens. Yeah, the book title taken from the quote of the character Francisco is wrong too. And the first line. Etc. Harhar. Let's crash your economy and mess everyone up. Funny people.
