This is Ayn Rand's final public talk, given in November 1981 to an audience of businessmen at a conference in New Orleans sponsored by the National Committee for Monetary Reform.

This injustice is further compounded when these same victimized businessmen accept their attackers' moral standards and end up guiltily apologizing for their own productive virtues.
