Kamis, 10 September 2015: Ayn Rand - Atlas Shrugged

“Money will not purchase happiness for the man who has no concept of what he wants: money will not give him a code of values, if he’s evaded the knowledge of what to value, and it will not provide him with a purpose, if he’s evaded the choice of what to seek. Money will not buy intelligence for the fool, or admiration for the coward, or respect for the incompetent. The man who attempts to purchase the brains of his superiors to serve him, with his money replacing his judgment, ends up by becoming the victim of his inferiors. The men of intelligence desert him, but the cheats and the frauds come flocking to him, drawn by a law which he has not discovered: that no man may be smaller than his money. Is this the reason why you call it evil?"

Buku filosofis materialis dalam balutan novel yang menjelaskan bahwa money is not the root of all evil.

Dari dulu saya berpikir seperti itu tapi tak pernah dapat menemukan penjelasan logisnya. Nanti setelah membaca buku ini barulah saya temukan fondasi penjelasan yang komprehensif.

Bagi penganut paham spiritualis dan altruisme, ini bukanlah buku yang menyenangkan untuk dibaca.
