ATLAS SHRIEKED: Ayn Rand’s First Love and Mentor Was A Sadistic Serial Killer Who Dismembered Little Girls - By Mark Ames - The eXiled

There’s something deeply unsettling about living in a country where millions of people froth at the mouth at the idea of giving health care to the tens of millions of Americans who don’t have it, or who take pleasure at the thought of privatizing and slashing bedrock social programs like Social Security or Medicare. It might not be as hard to stomach if other Western countries also had a large, vocal chunk of the population who thought like this, but the US is seemingly the only place where right-wing elites can openly share their distaste for the working poor. Where do they find their philosophical justification for this kind of attitude?

:rofl:

Exiled comes to the rescue again. It's truly embarrassing to see nitwits cling on her every word as if it were gospel as they get fucked by the very ideals Rand (and her fans) composed.

Can't remember who said it but this sums up my view of Ayn Rand quite well

"A true anarchist; one who hates humanity in general with the same venom we reserve for our specific enemies."

Sorry. I didn't have time to scope newsmax and worldnutdaily for criticism on Ayn Rand. Regardless of the link, the point remains.

I read "Anthem" be her. Gotta say her ideals were pretty screwed up.

EO Violation, check out the rest of that website, and if it's still up, exile.ru. They're very very clear in their biases, but they're also damn smart and usually right.

Randroids are amusing in their defense of Rand's books and Objectivism and her faith in a form of anarcho-capitalism. She has a way with words, but I've never really bought into them myself really. One thing that always turned me off about it is her dismissive attitudes towards others; "you don't agree with my views, you're stupid and don't use reason".

To Rand, anything with "public" prefixed onto it is instantly collectivist and thus either fascist or socialist (in her mind, the same thing), and ergo evil. Probably hardened due to how her family was treated in Soviet Russia.

Just don't tell Randroids that Alan Greenspan said he engineered his economic plans on his Objectivist ideals. That gets them going. Also, they are very confident that they will be the ones to benefit in that society, that they will all be the idealized man that Ayn Rand made through John Galt, but there would only be room for a limited number of those...
