The Rand Amendment

Ayn Rand on the final page of  the novel Atlas Shrugged proposed an amendment to The Constitution:

Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of production and trade.

At one stroke the entire body of progressive legislation imposed upon us is removed from existence.  We are freed from the burden of bureaucracy.  Socialism in effect if not name is abolished. 

Our minds are freed from the chains imposed by the mindless and The Path of Life* is cleared.

 I could go on all day about the practical benefits of The Rand Amendment, but I have other things to do, and so does every other rational person.

*The Path of Life was the previous name for my blog.
