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

I'm pretty sure even Nietzsche would have detested Rand, Nietzsche didn't deal in absolutes, that was more or less that point of his many writings, while Rand obviously does. Rand was exactly the kind of "philosopher" that Nietzsche criticized: she had a set of very specific points of view all predicate on some deeply felt grudge she had against collectivism and proceeded to build a philosophy intended to justify that grudge. Very poor form indeed.
