“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).

    I had no idea that she was Jewish. And that she received Social Security under an assumed name. These have to be two of the best kept secrets in Western Culture. YES they matter. Alan Greenspan became enchanted by her and now we have a tremendous mess on our hands.

      It makes absolutely no difference what religion she is. That point is irrelevant.

        I believe that she was jewish only by ethnicity, not by religion.

        It seems to me that most ayn randian libertarians are republicans who believe that they are too smart for religion.

      Thanks for the link.

      Which sort of underlines the fact that most of the ones who preach this sort of extremist ideology cannot even fathom to live it themselves.

      She’s a hypocrite just like most of her ‘conservative’ sheep.
