Yaron Brook Visits the NSA

Recently Yaron Brook, head of the Ayn Rand Institute, visited the offices of the National Security Agency, as he relates to Amy Peikoff during a “Don’t Let It Go Unheard” podcast of hers. The NSA invited Brook and a small group of other academics to talk with NSA officials. Those officials “tried to convince us that they’re following the law,” Brook said. He said “the law’s the problem, . . . and the executive branch is the problem, and American foreign policy is the problem”; the NSA domestic spy programs are a consequence of those deeper problems. Listen to the podcast for his complete account and for his comments on various other contemporary issues.
