Ayn Rand's Sense of Life and Spiritual Seeing Ends Government Oppression

"I join Ayn Rand, educating spiritually!"

Government worshipers are in control of most universities, virtually every public school system, and almost every major media market. The general public has been thoroughly brainwashed to believe that if there is a problem, or the illusion of a problem, government solutions are the answer ... a new government program, a new government bureaucracy, more power to government.

Because almost all avenues of education and information have been under the control of government worshipers, the vast majority of people are stuck in thinking habits which will never for long periods of time serve liberty.

Because people's underlying thinking habits will rise to the surface again and again, any liberty-oriented political victory can only be short-lived ... unless people's underlying way of thinking is changed.

As much as we might hate to admit it, thorough re-education of the public cannot not be a number one priority for those who deeply feel the natural impulse to political liberty.

The question is: what to teach?

The answer is given by Ayn Rand. It's not about politics or economics. It's about mankind's life-enhancing spirit vs. mankind's death-serving ego. It's about Ellsworth Toohey's ego trying to utterly destroy Howard Roark's creative spirit. It's about James Taggart's ego trying to belittle as "old-fashioned" his sister's innocent and wondering spirit. It's about Lillian Reardon's ego trying to twist the laws of nature 180 degrees and somehow render immoral Hank Reardon's benevolent and heroic spirit.

It's about life vs. death. Religious people might allegorically identify the issue as God vs. Satan or the Christ vs. the Devil. But there is no need to be allegorical. Mankind does have a heroic spirit and egos are determined to diminish this spirit and destroy it altogether if possible ... whether these egos manifest as government henchmen, union henchmen, corporate henchmen, media henchmen or just plain thugs.

Using intellectual articles or philosophical treatises, can I hope to educate the vast majority of people to the truth of the real battle going on? Only in my dreams!

Can I expose ego destroying spirit as Ayn Rand did with novels, plays, and screenplays made into movies? Now I'm being realistic!

Do I need to make myself into a novelist or playwright? Not unless this is my truest heart's desire and guidance of my own spirit. Ayn Rand has already done sufficient work for starters. I can create huge progress for liberty in the world, lighten and enlighten earth existence, merely by selling and promoting the work Ayn Rand has already done.

Ayn Rand's philosophy is nowhere near 100% correct. Her perception is severely limited and when she philosophizes she sometimes gets herself trapped in the same kinds of cobwebs spun by all intellectuals. My purpose is not to create a million and one robotic Objectivists who lock step to the same tune and end up being stumbling blocks to the cause of true freedom by alienating people.

It is not Ayn Rand's philosophizing that makes her work valuable to my cause but her sense of life and spiritual seeing. My purpose is to sell her sense of life and her vivid understanding that the forces opposing the spirit of mankind are the forces of death itself.

What if I gave myself an assignment to brainstorm 101 fresh ideas for selling Ayn Rand's work, especially her greatest novels, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged? My guess is that at least one of the schemes which pops into my mind is going to seem to me like it would be a really fun endeavor which would have me choosing great joy.

As I go forth teaching to the world the fullness of life as opposed to the sense of death taught by government worshipers, I allow myself to feel immense gratitude that I do not have to be like the mythical Atlas, weighed down by a heavily pressing world. Instead, I can think of the world as being like a beach ball. It is light and fun. I throw it around, shape it, play tag with it, and use it to chidingly bounce off the heads of a few liberals and conservatives, maybe knocking loose some old death-serving conceptions ... with Ayn Rand's help.

The device which even more deeply prepares freedom lovers for success, A Course in Miracles , talks about our ultimate need to free ourselves from every kind of slavery:

You have been told to bring the darkness to the light, and guilt to holiness. And you have also been told that error must be corrected at its source. Therefore, it is the tiny part of your self, the little thought that seems split off and separate, that the Holy Spirit needs. The rest is fully in God's keeping, and needs no guide. But this wild and delusional thought needs help, because, in its delusions, it thinks it is the Son of God, whole and omnipotent, sole ruler of the kingdom it set apart to tyrannize by madness into obedience and slavery.
