Freedom itself is an act of rebellion

The Cyprus government's savings confiscation plan failed, good for them!  Still, the world increasingly makes me ponder this quote and the message in the Captain's book.
Instead of working hard, producing a lot, and saving, only to have the government simply confiscate your money, you can rebel - you can go Galt, and you won't be the only one.  Go Galt and read Thomas Paine, and maybe we'll shape up enough to restore the republic.
Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. - Thomas Paine, The Crisis
