• • • Video Asks GOP: “Ayn Rand or Jesus?”
Daily Kos Altruism |Atheism |Atlas Shrugged movie |Atlas Shrugged |Capitalism |Egoism |Individualism |Video | The American Values Network (AVN) recently released a video debunking the innocuousness of Rand’s philosophy (Objectivism). It drives home the point that one cannot be a Christian and be partial to Rand. For one, Rand was not merely advocating specific political actions, but rewiring the human conscience so that pure and unrepentant selfishness that leaves no room for altruism is foundational to human existence. In an interview with Mike Wallace, she went so far as to assert that altruism is “evil.” No helping the poor, the sick, the voiceless. It is all about the holy trinity of me, myself, and moi.
