Changing the World by Reaching the Right Mind at the Right Time
To those who are concerned about the state of today’s world and want to correct it, Ayn Rand wrote “Speak on any scale open to you, large or small—to your friends, your associates, your professional organizations, or any legitimate public forum. You can never tell when your words will reach the right mind at the right time. You will see no immediate results—but it is of such activities that public opinion is made.” (“What Can One Do?,” Philosophy: Who Needs It)
At ARI, we work daily to spread Ayn Rand’s ideas and improve the state of the world one mind at a time. Recently, we received an email from an entrepreneur who watched Yaron Brook’s interview with Patrick Bet-David at OCON 2018—and became intrigued with the ideas discussed in the interview:
I watched your interview with Patrick Bet-David on his YouTube channel. I’m a subscriber to his channel and throughout my life have always been led to a more socialistic outlook on things.
I thought you had really interesting things to say and couldn’t help but watch video after video of your debates and speeches.
Based on what I’ve seen and been told in the past, I thought Ayn Rand was immoral or against humanity, and that the ARI was just some corrupt organization for a few entitled people—but I don’t see it that way anymore.
I am an entrepreneur myself. In my field, I’ve condensed months or a year of complicated work into weeks for my clients—and I can’t stomach a world where I would be forced to be paid the same amount as someone doing unskilled labor.
Thanks for the videos,
