The Altruist Demands Your Sacrifice is dedicated to the memory of Ayn Rand…February 2, 1905 to March 6, 1982…who courageously fought the anti-life philosophy of altruism.
When the economy unravels, the altruist will put out the call for sacrifice…your sacrifice. He will claim “those that have…must help those who need.” You know the old Karl Marx belief promoting communism…which never considers that needs are unlimited and resources are scarce.
An altruist believes in collectivism…which means the almighty state owns your life. Who cares if you prefer to live for your own sake.
Here’s how the demand for your sacrifice plays out. He will state that because we are suffering through a national economic crisis…it’s a person’s patriotic duty to sacrifice for the common good. Since some intransigent individuals might believe they have the right to their life, liberty and property…it is necessary that the “benefactors” of mankind enlist the help of their political hacks (politicians). The government must exercise its power of violent compulsion and coercion…forcing these intransigent individuals, these “enemies” of the state to comply.
An altruist pretends like he’s a loving person…concerned for people’s well-being. Actually he reeks of evil; he’s a destroyer of values…responsible for most of the horrible atrocities we’ve seen since the turn of the 20th century.
“Ayn Rand states “Man must choose his actions, values and goals by the standard of that which is proper to man—in order to achieve, maintain, fulfill and enjoy that ultimate value, that end in itself, which is his own life.”
As you can see altruism sinks as an anti-life philosophy. It’s the kiss of death.
Let’s expose altruism for the lie it is.
The altruist pretends he possesses a deep love for humanity…claiming to be its benevolent benefactor. He’s more like a malevolent dictator since he supports the anti-life social systems of socialism and government interventionism.
The truth of the matter is…socialism has always slummed in the house of ill repute. Its theories are blatantly false. In order to cloak his socialist aspirations, the altruist now concentrates most of his efforts on “improving” capitalism.
Now how does he bless us with these “improvements?” He uses the apparatus of violent compulsion and coercion, the government, to force them down our throats. Then he devilishly enlists the support of the establishment press into tricking the hapless masses into believing these measures benefit them.
Would you believe the propaganda tactics are so effective that even some capitalists, entrepreneurs and investors get sucked into this nonsense. They, along with the masses, don’t realize they unwittingly support the expropriation of their wealth. Incredibly, altruists make master thieves look like rank amateurs…because we know the beneficiaries of the swindle are the Elite and its Soldiers. That’s what nice about thinking, feeling and acting like an Objectivist Warrior thinks, feels and acts. We see reality for what it is.
Ayn Rand calls the acceptance of sacrifice “the sanction of the victim.”
Here’s something you can do. Scratch an altruist and see how he bleeds. Guess what you discover? Shockingly, you find he actually bleeds evil. Why? Because the altruist hates self-reliant people, especially Objectivists.
Ask yourself this. Why else would he recommend policies and procedures that ruin the lives of many hard working, productive people?
Do you know the altruist feeds off the negative emotions of needy people? He first attempts to eat the productive ones, although fortunately some are too hardy and resistant to succumb to his cannibalism. Then when he has cannibalized as many of them as possible, he devours the very same people he claims he is helping…which explains the plight of so many victims of our economic catastrophes.
Here’s a fact. The individualist doesn’t need the altruist to survive and thrive. In fact the self-reliant individual sees the altruist for what he is…a parasite that lives off the efforts of productive people.
If you want to know why our economy keeps spiraling down to oblivion, you don’t have to look very far. It is the anti-life philosophy of altruism, institutionalized as a political system that causes the stinking, rotten mess.
You may have a difficult time believing my analysis of altruism. In fact, you could vehemently protest my assessment of altruism by telling me altruists possess the best of intentions…that they actually want to help people.
In my defense I could quote the old cliché’ “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” However, isn’t it apparent to you…altruists consciously or subconsciously possess evil intentions?
Here’s a few questions for you. Since social altruism causes horrible consequences for all involved…why does the altruist insist on meandering down the same ill-fated road? If he really loves human beings, why does he keep enforcing policies that destroy their lives? Why does he support the anti-life social systems of socialism and government interventionism? Why does he continually violate an individual’s life, liberty and property?
I’m sure you have to agree that altruists aren’t creating loving, harmonious social conditions. Their goal remains enslaving us in a totalitarian social system. We become like bees in a hive. We give up our independent, reasoning minds to the Hive Mind Mentality.
Now do you see the terrible sacrifice the altruist will demand from you?
Open up your mind to this enlightening disclosure. The individualist is the very person the world depends on for survival and progress. He practices the philosophy of rational selfishness, using his reasoning ability to take purposeful action to achieve his goals and desires. He fervently opposes irrationality and the anti-life philosophy of altruism. Since he believes in self-responsibility and self-reliance, he supports the social system of laissez faire (unhampered) capitalism. The man or woman of rational selfishness lives the life of an Objectivist Warrior.
Contrast the following with the heavy handedness of an altruist.
Although the individualist uncompromisingly opposes social altruism, he is benevolent in his dealings with others. He believes in trading value for value. He would never purposely violate someone’s life, liberty and property. Of course, since he is human he makes some mistakes, but far fewer than the altruist or the mindless, irrational person. The individualist possesses the power of his mental tools to guide him.
The individualist is happy to offer a helping hand to those who can benefit from the relationship. If you’ve accepted the propaganda of the establishment this may surprise you. Altruists would like you to believe the individualist acts like self-centered brute. This is a myth. However, he does oppose helping those who refuse to help themselves.
Fortunately, he doesn’t believe in rendering people helpless by taking away their self-reliance. He knows that altruists have viciously destroyed the self-reliance and self-responsibility of millions upon millions of people. He believes this is one of the greatest evils ever foisted on mankind.
The individualist is goal oriented and works diligently to achieve his goals and desires. He is an optimistic person who overcomes the blocks and obstacles that come his way unbidden. Should he meet with temporary adversity…he rechecks his premises and takes a more effective course of action.
The Call to Sacrifice
Here’s the bottom line. There is no reason to think you are obligated to help people on a collective level. In reality there is no such thing as the “collective”. There are only individuals. All actions begin with the individual. Even when people are working together as a team…individuals determine the course of action and the results achieved.
Do you enjoy helping people? Does it supply you much pleasure? Well I have some good news for you. It is fine to voluntarily help people on an individual level. You decide what your values are and act accordingly. If helping someone corresponds to your value system then do it. It will give you much pleasure…and it may supply the person you help with great satisfaction. It is a value for value exchange.
Here’s something to watch out for. When somebody tells you that you should do something for the benefit of the “collective” or for the good of “society”…they are conning you into to sacrificing your best interest for something that has no reality of its own. What they actually mean is: You are to sacrifice your best interest for mine.
Altruists in their roles as politicians and propaganda specialists always put out the call to sacrifice…your sacrifice.
Here’s the truth about our continuing economic woes. The greed and avarice of the Elite and its Soldiers disrupts the smooth functioning of the marketplace.
Beside progressive taxes and excessive government regulations their favorite weapon of destruction remains the Federal Reserve System. The QE and ZIRP scams destroy the savings of the productive individual, rendering his hard work irrelevant. You can also imagine what it does to people on fixed incomes.
Do the following for you, your children and your children’s children. Disable all altruists by resisting their call to sacrifice. Live for that which is just and sublime. Reject all government intervention on the marketplace. Demand that we adopt the social system of laissez faire capitalism. Most important, you must live for your own sake. That’s what the Objectivist Warrior does.
