In this April 4, 1968 radio commentary, Ayn Rand critiques the ideas and writings of Democratic Sens. Eugene McCarthy and Robert F. Kennedy. Both were seeking the Democratic Party nomination for President of the United States. Ayn Rand discusses the threat of communism and the solution: "clear policy and a consistent philosophy including a morality that opposes evil of that kind firmly, fearlessly and self-righteously." She also expresses her pride in being an American.

She references religion, collectivism, altruism, and mysticism; the Pope's pronouncements; and the charismatic movement, including one of its leading lights, David du Plessis. [Creative Commons Attribution: Pacifica Radio Archive]
