The Fascist New Frontier

Ayn Rand

Presented at: FHF 1962 The Fascist New Frontier

Date: Dec 16, 1962

In this 1963 talk, Ayn Rand offers her assessment of President Kennedy’s signature New Frontier program. Rand identifies a fundamental principle that Kennedy’s program shares with the fascist states of twentieth-century Europe: the “subordination and sacrifice of the individual to the collective.” This principle, Rand argues, is the “ideological root of all statist systems, in any variation, from welfare statism to a totalitarian dictatorship,” and was ubiquitous in the political dialogue of 1960s America.
