House of the Day (7/9/2019) and a Message from John Galt

Before we get to the house of the day, I’d like to begin with a passage from John Galt’s speech at the end of Atlas Shrugged.  Spend some time soaking this in:

“Just as man can’t exist without his body, so no rights can exist without the right to translate one’s rights into reality—to think, to work and to keep the results—which means: the right of poverty. The modern mystics of muscle who offer you the fraudulent alternative of ‘human rights’ versus ‘property rights,’ as if one could exist without the other, are making a last, grotesque attempt to revive the doctrine of soul versus body. Only a ghost can exist without material property; only a slave can work with no right to the product of his effort. The doctrine that ‘human rights’ are superior to ‘property rights’ simply means that some human beings have the right to make property out of others; since the competent have nothing to gain from the incompetent, it means the right of the incompetent to own their betters and to use them as productive cattle. Whoever regards this as human and right, has no right to the title of ‘human.’”

Today’s home of the day is a château located in beautiful Mont Tremblant, Québec.  The property, which is named Fleur de Lys, is located on Canada’s Mont Tremblant, a ski resort, and overlooks Lake Tremblant.  The house is around 17,000 square feet with 50 rooms and is on the market for $22 million.
