Dr. Bill and St. Ayn Preach on The Evil of Altruism

Dear Former Chief Trende,

Thank you for speaking up, but I don't think you can convert The Least Rev. Dr. Bill.
The fact that you suggest Dr. Bill participate in functions that benefit others indicates that you haven't fully explored or adaquately studied the luminous and voluminous scriptures of the Sacred Book of Bill (publisher OTBL). From my admittedly limited study of these scriptures, I made the observations.

Dr. Bill is a true believer in the Church of Any Rand Captialist Selfishness a "Church" whose greatest mortal sin is that of altruism. At the same time he distiquishes himself as a believer in a Diety. How he reconciles this obvious contradition is beyond me. (I guess hanging on the Cross for the sins of the world can be pretty egotistical and therfore selfish) Perhaps Dr. Bill's "Diety" is the one whose birthday we recently celebrated on June 6th 2006.

Rand's Atheism

"Ayn Rand was an atheist. According to her one-time associate Barbara Branden, Rand became an atheist at age thirteen. Branden records Rand writing in her diary at that age: "Today I decided to be an atheist." Branden then reports her as later explaining, "I had decided that the concept of God is degrading to men. Since they say that God is perfect, man can never be that perfect, then man is low and imperfect and there is something above him – which is wrong." [Branden, PAR, p. 35.] Branden continues that Rand's "second reason" is that "no proof of the existence of God exists."

Rand therefore proposes two objections to the existence of God. First, belief in God degrades man, by positing something "higher" or more "perfect." Belief in God is anti-man. Second, there is no proof for the existence of God. While Rand would later emphasize the irrationality of belief in God, the impression from her writings is that her principal objection to belief in God was a moral or psychological one."

If it were only Dr. Bill and his OTBL coven who were promoting this philosophy, it would be a smaller matter for concern. But Dr. Bill is not alone. Disciples of St. Ayn are being appointed to some of the most powerful
offices in Washington. Take for example Christopher Cox, the new head of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Cox - a devoted student of Ayn Rand, the high priestess of unfettered capitalism.

To gain a greater incite into the psyche of OTBL's "spiritual" leader, I'd recommend the following
bedtime reading:

"Rand believed that individuals can rise to levels consonant with their developed abilities. When human beings relate to one another on the basis of these abilities, exchanging value for value, a benevolent harmony of interests becomes possible. When "need," rather than ability, becomes a criterion for the acquisition of values, it sets off a degenerative social process in which the "needs" of some place a moral claim on the lives of others. This is the evil of altruism, says Rand; it becomes a pretext for oppressing the most creative individuals in society." ~ Chris Matthew Sciabarra

This country was not based on selfless service, sacrifice, renunciation or any precept of altruism. It was based on a man's right to the pursuit of happiness - his own happiness. Not anyone else's. A private, personal, selfish motive.

More "Enlightenment form the "religion" of Dr. Bill.
