Five hours ago I posted this on Facebook. I re-post it here with the comments. I was just watching Fox business Channel where Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and Charles Munger (chairman of Berkshire-Hathaway) were answering questions from the lady moderator.

He replied that Rand's political philosophy of laissez-faire capitalism doesn't work, adding that ax murderers exist in laissez-faire and there is nothing good about that and that people need restraints.

This is but one example of why businessmen are often their own worst enemies, and an example of the sanction of the victim.
