[ prosperity trickles down from the rich ]

This micrologo represents a concept of Objectivism that implies lower classes should be grateful for any prosperity it gets, because it’s all trickling down to us from a superior class of humans: the rich. Yes, those titans of humanity are the only reason anything gets done anywhere in the world.

There’s some good stuff in Objectivism, but overall, it’s a little too elitist for me. Maybe if I was ridiculously wealthy I’d be better at appreciating it.

Anyways, why is this stuff relevant? I don’t know. But conservatives, from Frank Miller to the Republican party keep bringing up this philosophy.





On the plus side, it at least gave us a few cool superheroes based on those ideals:
















Don’t ask me why Objectivism makes for a crappy life-philosophy, but great comic-book characters.
