I don't agree her objectivist bullshit but she's making some valid points right here.
And if there's anyone who knows philosophical flaws, it's Ayn Rand.
She's kinda right though, one thing that almost sold me on Objectivism is their take on religion.
Except she is going against her own philosophy. I understand that religious belief is irrational, but what the republicans sell to get votes does not mean they are being irrational. Ayn Rand believes that people should make a decision with who they deal with based on ones wills and disposition to the other party (ie. the group with the cheapest product or in this case the more preferred values). The Republican party is simply presenting themselves in a way that would make them a desirable party to choose.They are doing what works to get what they want, just because they aren't being openly rational shouldn't matter at all.
Objectivism is 'Will to Power' for retards.

I never thought I would give Ayn Rand 5 stars.
Great, now she's plagiarizing Marx
It seems that Ayn Rand would support DOCTOR RON PAUL
-1 for no slow motion replay.
I AM TELLING YOU YOU ARE NOT AN ARCHITECT.
what an elitist
If only she had stuck to speeches and essays like this instead of writing stories.
ahh so THIS is the diary clip I'm missing to get that achievement!
You know, if all I knew about Ayn Rand came from this clip, I would think she was really smart.

America never deserved a champion like her.
That being said, she wasn't always dysfunctional and this is one of the times where she is basically right, even if it is a common sense sort of thing.
these are mostly lucid and cogent arguments but lurking on the fringes of them you can hear her beginning to veer off into the aspie obsessive drive to build simplistic abstract models from scratch in her head and then filter all of reality through them
Interestingly, most philosophy boils down to what you guys are saying about her. Using reason up to a point to lend your view credence, and then taking a flying leap into absurdity.
"Here are some valid points based on logic and empirical
evidence. And now, logically, you can see why gnomes invade my home at night and break my picture frames."

It' hard to wrap your head around something logical coming out of her.
Using Rand to argue for separation of church and state is like using the Fox to argue for the liberation of chickens from their hen houses.
