• • • The Sociology of the Ayn Rand Cult by Murray N. Rothbard
Murray N. Rothbard, LewRockwell.com Alan Greenspan |Atheism |Atlas Shrugged |The Fountainhead |Nathaniel Branden |Personal life | We conclude our analysis of the Rand cult with the observation that here was an extreme example of contradiction between the exoteric and the esoteric creed. That in the name of individuality, reason, and liberty, the Rand cult in effect preached something totally different. The Rand cult was concerned not with every man’s individuality, but only with Rand’s individuality, not with everyone’s right reason but only with Rand’s reason. The only individuality that flowered to the extent of blotting out all others, was Ayn Rand’s herself; everyone else was to become a cipher subject to Rand’s mind and will.
