The Significance of the Goldwater Campaign

Ayn Rand

This recording combines two interviews bookending the 1964 presidential election contest between Barry Goldwater and Lyndon Johnson. The first interview, recorded just days before the election, features Rand’s views on the candidates and issues, along with her advice on how to vote thoughtfully. The second, recorded the week after the election, offers her analysis of the election and stresses that the case for political freedom must be made through education and advocacy before it can be expected to influence political campaigns.

This program lasts 54 minutes.
