“Can you sacrifice the few? When those few are the best? Deny the best it’s right to the top–and you have no best left. What are the masses but millions of dull, shrivelled, stagnant souls that have no thoughts of their own, who eat and sleep and chew helplessly the words others put into their brains?

Because men are not equal in ability and one can’t treat them as if they were.”

—Ayn Rand, We the living
