Needs = claims



We do not consider need a claim

Welfare as an objective


If the motive is the welfare of others, then anything goes.

   --  Ayn Rand

Our brothers keepers


“'What will be done about the poor and the handicapped in a free society?' The altruist-collective premise, implicit in the question is that men are their brothers keepers and the misfortune of some is a mortgage on others. Observe that he does not ask 'should anything be done?' but 'what will be done?'- as if the collectivist premise had been tacitly accepted and all that remains is the means to implement it.

   --  Ayn Rand
