Leftists as well as religious conservatives routinely misrepresent Ayn Rand’s ideas—often wildly so—and then mock the straw men of their own creation. Although one might have expected better from PJ Media, Andrew Klavan and Bill Whittle take the same approach in their recent PJ video.

Atheism  

PJTV member JordiC asks ‘Why is Ayn Rand nonsense?’ Is atheism’s moral absolutist a utopian spouting something worse than nonsense — Bastiat with boloney?

PJTV contributors Andrew Klavan and Bill Whittle proceed under the same handicap when they criticize Rand in their most recent episode of Klavan and Whittle, embedded above. It’s tough to blame them for a clumsy handling of her ideas, because I’ve been there. Indeed, it’s fair to expect that the vast majority of people stand largely unequipped to handle Rand’s philosophy. It is so radically different from anything else before or since, and has yet to be widely taught and understood.

Ayn Rand said, “Time and again, I have found that the basic evil behind today’s ugliest phenomena is altruism” ; she believed in “selfishness.” But Gandhi said, “Find yourself in the service of others”;
he believed in altruism. God, based on His discussion with Cain, seems to agree with Gandhi about being our brothers’ keeper.

  1. Ayn Rand I’m not sure how I feel about all of her philosophy (people are just…not selfish enough? Hmm) but this woman was SOLID on her atheism, , and had some pretty badass arguments to back herself up.

Atheism  

In the realm of modern secular humanism, only “perfect” children, apparently, need apply—and a new set of eugenicists is working to encourage just that, often sounding like comic book villains or Ayn Rand characters in the process.

…the natures of his budgets, which would slash taxes for the rich while removing protections and safety nets for America’s most vulnerable, all align squarely with Rand’s philosophy.

Don’t like abortion? Don’t have one. Don’t believe in assisted suicide? Don’t do it then. Disapprove of gay marriage? Don’t marry a man. Because we’re all free floating, autonomous Ayn Rand characters our decisions don’t affect anyone else – you see? Of course, some of us know that this isn’t true.
