Can you sacrifice the few? When those few are the best?

“Can you sacrifice the few? When those few are the best? Deny the best its right to the top—and you have no best left. What are your masses but millions of dull, shrivelled, stagnant souls that have no thoughts of their own, no dreams of their own, no will of their own, who eat and sleep and chew helplessly the words others put into their brains? And for those you would sacrifice the few who know life, who are life? I loathe your ideals because I know no worse injustice than the giving of underserved. Because men are not equal in ability and one can’t treat them as if they were. And because I loathe most of them.” ~ Ayn Rand in We The Living
