Force and mind are opposites


"Force and mind are opposites." This phrase is from John Galt's speech in Atlas Shrugged - Ayn Rand's monumental novel.

"So long as men desire to live together, no man may initiate—do you hear me? no man may start—the use of physical force against others. . . . Do not open your mouth to tell me that your mind has convinced you of your right to force my mind. Force and mind are opposites; morality ends where a gun begins. When you declare that men are irrational animals and propose to treat them as such, you define thereby your own character and can no longer claim the sanction of reason—as no advocate of contradictions can claim it. There can be no “right” to destroy the source of rights, the only means of judging right and wrong: the mind." — Atlas Shrugged
