This is a talk by Yaron Brook, president and executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute, delivered at George Mason University on November 3, 2011. Based on a revolutionary view of why government intervention grows--and what must be done in order to stop it--Dr. Brook offers his assessment of two political movements: The Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street. He concludes that to successfully stop the growth of the state, and end cronyism, Americans will have to discover that laissez-faire capitalism is the only moral system--one that must be defended without guilt.
