Ayn Rand: Literature For the Thinking SociopathSubmitted by jabowery on Sat, 10/29/2011 - 10:32
Reading this account of Ayn Rand's worshipful praise of a serial killer, I was reminded of the time, during the mid '80s, when Robert Anton Wilson was my house guest. Being a novelist himself, RAW brought up Ayn Rand's writings in the context of libertarian philosophy. I simply mused: "Ah, Ayn Rand. Literature for the thinking sociopath!" RAW found that highly amusing.
I didn't know at the time that Ayn Rand actually found a serial killer to be a model of masculinity.
