Libertarian’s just another word for no brain cells left to lose. Libertarianism is based on a fundamental misperception about the nature of human nature and society, and we come back to the frustration I had when I was in college: I wanted to really deconstruct the whole Ayn Rand “philosophy” but the philosophy profs were too busy sneering at it to worry about it as influential or NEEDING refutation.

Her two best known protagonists, Howard Roark and John Galt, are terrorists. Roark blows up entire blocks of housing with dynamity, Galt engages in a massive conspiracy to do nothing less than take down the machinery of Western Civilization itself: to bring the nation to a crashing halt, no matter how much misery, starvation, illness, death by hypothermia or heat stroke take place.

Because they were “mean” to him supergeniusness.
