The Ironies of Ayn

Take a moment and think how ironical it is that a certain segment of the American population, which used to - and, I suppose, still does - condemn ideologies such as Communism for being atheistic, eagerly grasped onto Ayn Rand as their own atheistic and Capitalist philosopher.

A pure irony that few of us yet understand: we are the guys walking down the street in a top hat, Irony is the banana peel upon which we slip, or it is the snow ball that is thrown and knocks our topper into the gutter.

With the use of Irony, God cast the mighty from their thrones and raises the lowly; He spreads confusion in Babel and the Tower is destroyed; with Irony the powerful financial system is suddenly brought to its knees and cannot exist without money from even the poorest of us.
