    The foundations of capitalism are being battered by a flood of altruism, which is the cause of the modern world's collapse. This was the view of Ayn Rand, a view so radically opposed to prevailing attitudes that it constituted a major philosophic revolution. In this series of essays, she presented her stand on the persecution of big business, the causes of war, the default of conservatism, and the evils of altruism.

    "BEST of Ayn Rand!"
    Overall

    I've read almost every word Ayn Rand has ever written, and this is by far her magnus opus (though she would have disagreed). "Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal" is not simply a book about economics; Rand covers the rights of man, the nature of government (borrowed from "The Virtue of Selfishness"), and builds a picture of what a moral society would value. From this premise, Rand then discusses the only moral system of economics possible: capitalism. Phenomenal book for conservatives, liberals, and ESPECIALLY, the "moderates". I couldn't recommend this book more!

    Since the liberal revolution of the '60s and '70s, American history books have been biased toward the negative. They overemphasize America's racism, sexism, and bigotry while downplaying the greatness of her patriots. As a result, more emphasis is placed on Harriet Tubman than on George Washington, more on the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II than on D-day or Iwo Jima. This book offers a long-overdue acknowledgment of America's true and proud history.

    This is a terrific history book. The authors clearly went to great effort to provide an accurate historical account of our great nation, and without the typical propaganda (either left or right). Still, the reader of this book was absolutely AWFUL! So sad to see such a historical masterpiece go down in audio flames.
