• • She’s the best antidote to today’s selfish thinking
Atlas Shrugged |Egoism | [Connie Silver is] an artist, teacher-therapist and giver who donates all proceeds from the sale of her art to charity. She’s the opposite of the “greed-is-good” poison. Ayn Rand would have made her a villain in Atlas Shrugged because she helps other people. Paul Ryan and the Koch Brothers would accuse her of coddling the needy. She’s a one-woman answer to the tea party-GOP. [....] I suspect that Connie Silver was born restless, with an overdose of chutzpah. If she were to write her autobiography, she might call it Atlas Slugged: Ayn Rand, I'll give you a hand. She's that generous — and forgiving.
