Reaping Is A Virtue
Moderator Jeff Jacoby of the Boston Globe asks Yaron Brook, President of the Ayn Rand Institute, and Deborah Kincade Rambo, LICSW, President of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Boston: is charity an expression of virtue? Brook delves into Ayn Rand’s beliefs that charity should be undertaken only in self-interest and not out of a sense of false morality – or, worse, guilt. He explains that Rand’s followers would rather applaud the act of making money than giving it away. Rambo counters that charity as a virtue is critical to our collective well-being, enriching our society as it promotes a healthy economy. She argues that self-sacrifice through philanthropy is a form of love in which people of any (or no) religion can participate.
