• • • Ryan’s ‘Secret’ Tape Is Even More Extreme Than Romney’s
Richard (RJ) Eskow, Huffington Post Alan Greenspan |Altruism |Atheism |Atlas Shrugged |The Fountainhead |Individualism |Paul Ryan | How extreme, how far from the mainstream, was Rand’s thinking? She was profoundly hostile to the idea that human beings should help one another, writing that “If any civilization is to survive, it is the morality of altruism that men have to reject.” Rand also wrote that “Achievement of your happiness is the only moral purpose of your life.” Oh, and the hero of Rand’s novel The Fountainhead commits an act of terrorism. He’s an architect who blows up a building because he’s angry that his design was changed. Watch your back, John Boehner.
