Speaking the Truth

The liberals tend to advocate intellectual freedom, while demanding economic controls. Social conservatives (though they endorse many economic controls) tend to advocate economic freedom, while demanding government controls in all the intellectual and moral realms.

It is a paradox that the spiritualists advocate economic freedom, while the materialists advocate intellectual freedom.

Each camp wants to control the realm it regards as metaphysically important; each grants freedom only to the activity it despises(in comparison to its antithesis)…. Neither camp holds freedom as a value. Social conservatives want to rule man’s consciousness; the liberals his body.
Ayn Rand
If you're immersed in intellectual crusade everyday there is less time for reading and learning. Ayn Rand is one of the most profound intellectuals that have ever lived and I reccomend her to anybody interested in intellectual journys.
