Convictions vs Frowns…

“Men have died in torture chambers, on the stake, in concentration camps, in front of firing squads, rather than renounce their convictions. The appeaser renounces his under the pressure of a frown on a vacant face.”

Ayn Rand (1905 to 1982)

Ayn Rand, original name Alissa Zinovievna Rosenbaum, was a Russian-born American writer whose commercially successful novels promoting individualism and laissez-faire capitalism were influential among conservatives and libertarians and popular among generations of young people in the United States from the mid-20th century.
