• • • Ayn Rand’s Deranged Scribblings On View At Chapman University!
Nick Schou, Orange County Weekly - Navel Gazing (CA) Atlas Shrugged |For the New Intellectual |The Fountainhead |We The Living |Egoism |Image | You had Anthem foisted on you by your junior high school English teacher and later, as a pretentious college student, you slogged your way through The Fountainhead or Atlas Shrugged. Somehow you never woke up to the fact that Ayn Rand is a terrible writer and a bogus intellectual whose chief claim to fame is coining the term “Objectivism,” which is a fancy, faux-philosophical term for a range of personality disorders such as “greediness,” “selfishness,” “piggishness,” “narcissicism,” and “psychopathy.” What does this make you? A complete tool? A proud member of the target audience for a brand new exhibition of Rand’s actual notebooks, which will be on display for the next few months at the Mt. Pleasant Library of Special Collections and Archives at Chapman University’s Leatherby Libraries? If you answered “both,” you’re right!
