Novelist Ayn Rand Knew About the Offender Industry Decades Ago

I know some are skeptical when I write of the “sex-offender industry.” It’s your prerogative to think what you want to think. That doesn’t change facts.

Fact is, the industry has been in place for quite some time. Author Ayn Rand knew about it way back in the 1950s. Consider these chillingly true-to-life words that she puts into the mouth of  Dr. Floyd Ferris in her novel Atlas Shrugged:

“There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt.”

If you think the offender industry does not exist, I humbly predict that one day you will pay a dear price for living in such a sorry state of denial.
