Description:

  

Despite overwhelming evidence that government intervention wrecks health care , government control over American medicine keeps growing.

Why?

Because, Dr. Brook argues, virtually everyone today believes that a person's need morally entitles him to have it fulfilled at others' expense. This morality of need is at the root of every government health care entitlement, from Medicaid to ObamaCare .


In this provocative talk, Dr. Brook attacks the morality of need , and proposes a revolutionary alternative: the moral right of each individual to live for his own sake, taking responsibility for his own life and needs--including his health care needs--on a free market .

Organizer

Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights

The mission of the Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights is to advance individual rights (the rights of each person to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness) as the moral basis for a fully free, laissez-faire capitalist society.

The Center is located in Washington, D.C. and promotes the philosophical case for individual rights and laissez-faire capitalism to the public policy and business communities, the media and the general public, and to policy-makers.

Toward this end, the Center sponsors writing and research; produces articles, op-eds, and other media content; hosts forums, panel discussions, and debates; reaches out to businessmen, elected officials, and policymakers; and assists victims of governmental abuse in their efforts to defend themselves on moral grounds.

The Center promotes the principle of individual rights as a fundamental truth that each individual has a moral right to act on his own judgment for his own sake, so long as he does not violate that same right of others.
