On When Alan Met Ayn: "Atlas Shrugged" And Our Tanked Economy

I've never been a fan of Rand, nor have I been a fan of her fans. But someone just gave me that link after I shared this story, and my former non existent opinion of Ms. Rand has profoundly dropped.

Is it possible that Objectivism is based on Ms. Rand's schoolgirl crush on and admiration of the morals of a bank robbing, kidnapping, child murderer?

Sounds plausible to me, based on the callous disregard for human life most of Rand's characters, stories, and fans display.
