A Quote by Ayn Rand on public interest, common good, idealism, subsidies, legislation, power, liberty, and freedom

All "public interest' legislation (and any distribution of money taken by force from some men for the unearned benefit of others) comes down ultimately to the grant of an undefined undefinable, non-objective, arbitrary power to some government officials. The worst aspect of it is not that such a power can be used dishonestly, but that it cannot be used honestly. The wisest man in the world, with the purest integrity, cannot find a criterion for the just, equitable, rational application of an unjust, inequitable, irrational principle.

Ayn Rand (1905 - 1982)

A Quote by Michael on idealism, change, social entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurship, and social enterprise

The developed world has a vast, under-utilized asset that is not being leveraged to its best advantage: idealistic people who want to make the world a better place.  For most of a century, idealistic people have been encouraged to use anger, protest, lobbying, and legal action in order to make the world a better place.  While most certainly some of these behaviors and activities were necessary, we have reached the point at which the social benefit of such behaviors is decreasing.  We have reached the point at which creation, rather than attack, ought to be the first obligation of reformers.  The social entrepreneurship movement is the first tip of this iceberg.  We want to create a world in which all idealists realize that the creation of new enterprises is the most powerful way to make positive change in the world.  If all the energy that is currently invested in zero-sum political conflict was gradually transferred to the committed creation of sustainable enterprises, the cumulative impact on behalf of the good would be extraordinary.

We were told we could do anything we wanted and then when we tried they told us we couldn't. That's Generation X, the generation trapped between idealism and despair.
