Do any of you think Libertarians ought to distance themselves from Ayn Rand? My perception of Ayn Rand has deeply altered in recent days and I'm beginning to wonder why she's such a hero for so many in the Liberty movement. One doesn't need to be a statist to be altruistic and compassionate. But but why should this woman be venerated so much? Sure, she may have had some good ideas but why don't we criticize her selfishness and heartlessness more often? Perhaps this is why liberals aren't attracted to the movement.

My former debate opponent, Ana Kasparian called libertarians “wolves in sheep’s clothing” on her top rated web show “The Young Turks” this week. She was describing those who believe in social tolerance as well as free market economics as people who Republicans could sell to attract younger voters. Jacobin leftists made the same argument in a debate with me recently where they claimed that libertarians are “weaponized”, & “tools of the establishment.”
