    Leader of a 'Black Speratist' movement, founder of the Black Star shipping line. Where does he belong in US history? Civil Rights activist, revolutionary, or dreamer?

    LOL...

    "Garvey collaborated with outspoken segregationist and white supremacist Senator Theodore Bilbo of Mississippi to promote a reparations scheme. The Greater Liberia Act of 1939 would deport 12 million African-Americans to Liberia at federal expense to relieve unemployment."

    A man who had no bad goals, yet his ideas failed.Why?

    The atheist Rand didn't fail, she made $$$$$ off of suckers for her "selfishness IS higher thought" scam. See examples here.

    "Group think" goes back to the dawn of communities; of course, so does selfishness/Objectivism. A base emotion becomes a 'philiosophy.' :)
