Ever since President Obama was elected, sales of Ayn Rand's decades-old prophetic novel Atlas Shrugged have shifted into warp drive, untold millions of copies sold. Everywhere people are asking, "Where is Obama taking the United States? Will America end up a depressed and disheartened nation ruled by thugs?" Ayn Rand, writing over 50 years ago, showed us a clear picture of the future which is now unfolding. Dr. Yaron Brook says, “People are discovering the prescience of Ayn Rand’s writing. They’re seeing the policies of ‘Atlas Shrugged’ villains Wesley Mouch and Cuffy Meigs acted out by our government officials today."
Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles drives home the point on an even more fundamental metaphysical level: "The lesson I was born to teach, and still would teach to all my brothers, is that sacrifice is nowhere and love is everywhere."
Often a prophet or prophetess is a forerunner, signaling disaster about to come ... and offering at least a hint as to the solution. Ayn Rand was a great 20th Century prophetess. Freedoms known in the Western world will be saved if everyone you know reads her novels. And yet her inner hearing was not in every instance 100% clear. The clearest inner hearing had to wait for the humility of Helen Schucman and the voice of Jesus Christ:
The thought of sacrifice gives rise to all the forms that suffering appears to take. And sacrifice is an idea so mad that sanity dismisses it at once. Never believe that you can sacrifice. There is no place for sacrifice in what has any value. If the thought occurs, its very presence proves that error has arisen, and correction must be made.
America's salvation from Obama's insanity: Ayn Rand and Jesus Christ! Who would have guessed?
