Categories NFU Who is Ayn Rand? Post author By MCM Post date June 14, 2011 1 Comment on Who is Ayn Rand? ← In “Wisconsin” as PFAW imagines it, all you need to do to win elections is “get out the vote” → Wisconsin Supreme Court overturns ruling that invalidated Walker’s union-busting law One reply on “Who is Ayn Rand?” I’m not sure which illiterate airhead is more chilling, and/or embarrassing- Paul Ryan, or Sean Hannity. In 1911, the industrialist Richard Teller Crane said that no one who has “a taste for literature has the right to be happy” because “the only men entitled to happiness…are those who are useful”- so Rand isn’t even original with her own particular brand of nilistic sociopathy. Maybe Rand was a very useful tool for the post-WWII power brokers and “Red Scare” mongers. I’m not suggesting a conspiracy, but the cold warriors of 1945-c.1970 may have hyped and promoted her work (and it’s surrounding controversy) perhaps more than it deserved- I could be wrong. Please, no replies from Koch brothers funded trolls. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
