Rand wasn't about individualism

Rand's inner circle, who was all jewish (Rand was a racist), she called "the collective". True story, and it was lampooned by Murray Rothbard, who used to meet with her group. (a copy is on Lew Rockwell site - http://www.lewrockwell.com/rothbard/mozart.html )

I get a chuckle out of this everytime I read it, because having read Rand's works extensively, including her old objectivist newsletters, it's so true in it's satire. And there's plenty of stuff in it you only get from reading background on her biography as well. Like the affairs she was having, etc.

It's equally funny today because the humor applies to a lot of her followers online as well.
