A friend of mine was trying to get his head around Ayn Rand's political philosophy ("Objectivism") and came up with the following paraphrasing:

  1. Cheese triangles are.
  2. The goal of life is to consume the most cheese triangles, obviously.
  3. Any action anyone takes to prevent you from eating cheese triangles is punishable by sinking the entire continent of Africa into the ocean with him strapped to it.
  4. If you can get somebody stupid to give you two cheese triangles for one of yours, then repeatedly perform the swap until he has one cheese triangle left. Then try and persuade him to give you his last triangle. There is nothing wrong in doing this.

You may choose to agree or disagree.
