"Most men are not intellectual innovators, but they are receptive to ideas, are able to judge them critically and to choose the right course, when and if it is offered. There are also a great many men who are indifferent to ideas and to anything beyond the concrete-bound range of the immediate moment; such men accept subconsciously whatever is offered by the culture of their time, and swing blindly with any chance current. They are merely social ballast -be they day laborers or company presidents- and, by their own choice, irrelevant to the fate of the world."
-- Quote from Ayn Rand's in "For the New Intellectual", 1972 (in the paperback edition 1982, p201) (Don't like this quote; display another one!)
