Rarely have I seen criticism of Ayn Rand’s works, that has any depth at all. Most of the critics seem utterly unfamiliar with any of the ideas she has to offer.
Even more depressing, many “Objectivists” and purported followers of Rand have little or no more comprehension of her topics. They believe in the same dull cartoons as her detractors, only with excitement and vigor.
This is living proof that the collective mind (Objectivism) is an inferior copy of an individual idea (Rand’s thoughts.) Her ideals and style are appetizing to some, disgusting to others, like any good author. Can she inspire you to think? That’s all that matters. Can “Objectivists” inspire you to think? Rarely. Only when they can do so on their own; that’s not common.
