Fascinating. Ayn Rand on Johnny Carson 1967

28 Jul

This video has just been recently uncovered. Many of the old Carson shows were lost in a fire, but this has just been found and was published over at which I found by way of Correspondence Committee.

She makes the case for capitalism as being the only moral form of government and any move towards statism is a slide to immorality. Back in 1967 she didn’t foresee the United States moving towards statism. Oops.

Just like today’s libertarian movement there is much that I agree with, but some that I do not.

The audience reaction to her take on the Viet Nam war and involuntary conscription into the armed forces is interesting given the time of the interview.
