Atlas Shrugged

Atlas Shrugged

I refer to Godwin Ligo’s article in the Daily Post on 12th January, entitled “Political sponsorship of students discouraging: Garae”

The type of thinking held by Mr. Garae in itself is “discouraging”. His statement – “…it would be better if political parties and MPs allocation is spent on a technical or agricultural studies for failed students so that they can become more productive…..” is an insult to intelligence itself.

Can you imagine what it would be like if we prioritized the so-called financial “needs” of the lazy, uneducated, morals-deficit people over those of the intelligent, the achievers, the educated and those with “the right stuff”?

WHOOPS! I guess we already are, at least judging by the recent performance of some elected officials and their public service “toadies”.

Mr. Garae, I respectfully suggest, assuming an ability to read on his part, should embark on a self-education course, quickly. Some light reading akin to “The Communist Manifesto” (basically espouses the Mr. Garae-type thinking) would be a good start followed by Ayn Rand’s 12-years-in-the-writing “Atlas Shrugged”, a philosophy more akin to the modern-day hopes and aspirations of the citizens of a young nation such as Vanuatu and states thus: “My philosophy, in essence, is the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute.”
