In case you hadn't notice TimC,

it is Rand's novels that dramatize Individualism vs Collectivism that have remained soaringly popular since they do forecast the very problems faced in today's overwhelmingly statist societies all over the globe. Her Virtues of Selfishness makes a radical and valid point, but Rand's nonfiction works have been improved upon by subsequent libertarian theorists IMO. she was an early pioneer, not the last word.
