“This is the essence of the morality of altruism: the greater a man’s achievement and the greater society’s need of him—the more vicious the treatment he receives and the closer he comes to the status of a sacrificial animal.”

in Ayn Rand, Morality, Writers

-Ayn Rand, “Is Atlas Shrugging?” in Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal (New York: Signet, 1967), p.158.
