Live Internet Videostream of UPenn Lecture: You Are Not Your Brother's Health Care Provider

by Dr. Yaron Brook, Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights (ARC)


TUESDAY  MAY 11, 2010



This will be a *live*  internet videostreamed MediaSite presentation of the above lecture being simultaneously given at the:




Medical Alumni Hall

1st Floor Maloney Building ( HUP 1 )

Time: 7: 00 - 10: 00 PM

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


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 .


Dr. Yaron Brook is president and executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute and is a contributing editor to The Objective Standard. A former finance professor, he has published in academic as well as popular publications.


He is frequently interviewed in the media and appears weekly on the new Fox Business Network to debate and discuss current economic and business news.

His columns and opinion-editorials are published on and in major newspapers.

Dr. Brook lectures on Objectivism, business ethics and foreign policy at college campuses, community groups and corporations across America and throughout the world.

Remote viewers are invited to send questions over the internet to the speaker during the live Q & A session.


Directions on where and how to send questions will be posted here shortly.


I'd like to encourage those who live in the Philadelphia metropolitan area to attend the lecture in person if at all possible, rather than signing in remotely.

Server capacity is limited to approximately 200-250  at any one time, and this will allow those living elsewhere in the country to be able to access the lecture  live through the video streamed option.

There are several additional benefits to showing up in person.

First, by being physically present, you can demonstrate to your colleagues, to the public and to the media that you do not view ObamaCare as a "fait accomplit".

You are not passively resigned to allowing a bad plan to be forced on you and your patients which will negatively impact your physician autonomy, your medical decision-making, your personal and professional future and the quality and availability of health care services for your patients in the future.

ObamaCare may be passed- but US health care reform is far from over.

From a personal standpoint, by showing up, you get the opportunity to participate in the lively and challenging  Q & A section - which will also be videotaped and available on- line after the fact.

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.
