Ayn Rand Movie Coming Soon
“Ayn Rand,” real name Alisa Zinov’yevna Rosenbaum, was a proponent of “egoism” and the “Virtues of Selfishness”. As far as she was concerned, altruism was a sin.
Her anti humanitarian philosophy is a favorite of libertarian/republican corporate CEOs.
She condemned social programs that helped people but received social security and medicare benefits under another assumed name (ann o’connor).
Rand also believed that the scientific consensus on the dangers of tobacco was a hoax. By 1974, the two-pack-a-day smoker, required surgery for lung cancer.
She was a cold-hearted hypocrite;
and unfortunately, her book Atlas Shrugged is being made into a movie (in theaters april 15).
