Ayn Rand had no children. Neither, I once saw it pointed out, do her books. They do offer quite a challenge to Objectivism, don’t they, requiring a great deal of faith and the prospect of very little reward, particularly if you have to wait for them to earn it first…

…and isn’t one of our greatest challenges that we are very bad at properly valuing anything? And truthfully, if you’re going to value things in that concrete way — WHY HAVE YOUR “HEROES” JUST DUMP VALUABLE, LARGELY IRREPLACEABLE RESOURCES INTO THE OCEAN? That’s hardly a cool, objective act. It’s a childish act that many children would look at you like a moron for doing.

It’s the act of a spoiled brat…which unfortunately we do indeed encounter way too much of in this nation…
