We are on strike against those who believe that one man must exist for
the sake of another ... our terms are a moral code which holds that man
is an end in himself and not the means to any end of others ... The mind
is evil? We have withdrawn the works of our minds from society ...
Ability is a selfish evil that leaves no chance to those who are less
able? We have withdrawn from the competition and left all chances open
to incompetents. The pursuit of wealth is greed, the root of all evil?
We do not seek to make fortunes any longer.
-- John Galt
