Nathaniel Branden on Self-Esteem and Libertarianism

Posted: March 16, 2012 in Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand, libertarian, libertarianism, liberty, Objectivism

Nathaniel Branden is a psychotherapist and writer known for being both the founder of the self-esteem movement in psychology and a former associate of Ayn Rand.

In this lecture given at a Libertarian Party of California event in 2000, Branden talks about the connection between the workings of free-market capitalism, the self-esteem movement, and the Information Age. In his words, “entitlement robs people of the sense of self-reliance” and the self-esteem that comes with that sense of independence.
