Rand Institute MediaLink
"The Ayn Rand Institute (ARI), a 501(c)(3) educational organization,
was established in 1985 and is headquartered in Irvine, California. Ayn
Rand (19051982) was an ardent advocate of reason and rationality; individualism
and individual liberties; and free-market capitalism. ARI seeks to promote
these principles, spearheading a cultural renaissance to reverse the
anti-reason, anti-freedom, anti-capitalist trends in todays culture.
The major battleground in the fight for reason and capitalism is the educational
institutionshigh schools, and above all, the universities, where students
learn the ideas that shape their lives."
