Terence Corcoran, National Post Atheism |Ayn Rand Institute |Atlas Shrugged |The Virtue of Selfishness |Capitalism |Don Watkins |Egoism |Individualism |Paul Ryan |Yaron Brook |Image | Why would a world-famous economist, followed by millions, advisor to UN officials and presidents, launch into a personal attack on a novelist who’s been dead more than 30 years by citing one of her novels and paraphrasing the words of one of her characters? How many people have even heard of Ayn Rand? And who the hell cares what one of her characters said in a novel published 60 years ago? Lots of people, it appears. Ayn Rand may be long dead, but she seems to have been resurrected as the most dangerous woman in America.
