The Terrific Francisco D’Anconia Quote about Money

Fracisco D'Anconia quote about Money

The Francisco D’Anconia Quote about Money:

“Until and unless you discover that money is the root of all good, you ask for your own destruction. When money ceases to be the tool by which men deal with one another, then men become the tools of men. Blood, whips and guns–or dollars. Take your choice–there is no other–and your time is running out.” -Francisco D’Anconia quote about money

My Analysis:

This quotation is a great one because it shows the danger with saying that money is evil. Yes, greed can lead people to do bad things. But money is a store of value. It is a transnational item. It is how people work together in a civilized way. The nations of the world that don’t value money quickly become nations of slaves and slave-drivers.

The only way to fight against that is to stand up to the forces of evil, like Bernie Sanders, in the world that seek to implant socialism in the mind of the average person. Additionally, Atlas Shrugged, the book that this Francisco D’Anconia quote about money is in, is my favorite book, so I love everything from it. Rand’s work is full of excellent thoughts on how to avoid the evils of socialism.

And one of the main evils of socialism is the problem described by Francisco D’Anconia in this quote of his about money. Socialism and communism erase money. And once money is erased, men have no other way to deal with each other than with “blood, whips, and guns.”

Money, while it does often lead to problems, is far less problematic than the abhorrent twin ideologies of socialism and communism. While money can lead to greed, socialism leads to misery and whips, as Winston Churchill notes in his quote on capitalism and socialism. We should all listen to Mr. D’Anconia’s advice and trust in the constructive and positive effects of money so that we can avoid the degenerative effects of socialism.
