When you see that trading is not done by consent, but by compulsion:

When you see that in order to produce you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing:

When you see money flowing into those who deal not in goods, but in favors:

When you see that men get richer by graft and pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them but protects them against you:

When you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self sacrifice…

You know your society is doomed.

Ayn Rand
