... to Each According to Their Need

Barack Obama on the mortgage crisis:
In a campaign fact sheet, President-elect Barack Obama says he "recognizes that the real victims in the subprime mortgage crisis are not the lenders, but the millions of borrowers who followed the rules and whose only crime was taking out mortgages that lenders told them they could afford."
Meanwhile, in Iceland, they have many more toys than they can afford, the poor dears, and now the meanies they owe money to are asking them to pay up.

You can't have Atlas Shrugging without this kind of pro-consumer, anti-producer culture.
