I’m not a Rand follower–an “Objectivist”–and never will be. … But I can’t deny that there were aspects of her work that appealed to me. It’s foolish, I found, to pretend that Rand is a repulsive creature that only nutcases could fine appealing. If that were so, she wouldn’t be as powerful–and dangerous–as she is today.
Today, the revolution is being waged by the right. It will be successful–unless the rest of us stop ridiculing Ayn Rand and begin taking her seriously.
