"You Asked and We Listened"
Ayn Rand is a complex character and her book, downright dangerous but also revealing about the harsh power of selfishness, and of considering the 'other' as a lesser character. If you've not seen Mad Men, check it out; much of Rand's theories drove the advertising agencies of the '50s and '60s - not that the agencies are pristine these days, for sure. But, often, people are more discerning now. Rand was also an 'inspiration' to Reagan who slash-and-burn approached the whole reality of a healthy and well-run society with his so-called 'anti-government' rhetoric at the same time he functioned like a dictator. Let's see; which is it we are supposed to be? Democracy? or Corporatocracy?
