Ayn Rand's independent, free man

Last edited Thu Aug 30, 2012, 06:30 PM - Edit history (1)

.............................[font size="5"]....unencumbered by society.[/font]


His vocabulary: "Ugh", "Huh?", "Aauugh!!". Without society, there's no need for language....who you gonna talk to?
Without society and languange there is no culture. Then, does he have ideas or just perceptions such as pleasure, pain, fear and anger?

Then, is he a man ... or an animal, just a creature?

1. She admired a man who kidnapped, murdered and dismembered a little girl.

He sewed her eyelids open when he delivered her body to collect the ransom to fool the father her a few minutes. Just for shits and grins apparently. That was a man admired by Ayn Rand as free.

3. here's a link to the story.

This is the “amazing picture” Ayn Rand — guru to the Republican/Tea Party right-wing — admired when she wrote in her notebook that Hickman represented “the amazing picture of a man with no regard whatsoever for all that a society holds sacred, and with a consciousness all his own. A man who really stands alone, in action and in soul. Other people do not exist for him, and he does not see why they should.”

She was never more than a sick twisted evil person.

4. thnks. Always knew she was imbalanced - her so-called philosophy makes that obvious.

6. There was a video of Ayn that played on something my boyfriend and I were watching

Probably Colbert Report or something like that.

He's not political at all but he is a very kind just person. (I'm trying to get him to vote for the first time)

He actually physically recoiled.

...and then she started talking.



"What the hell is wrong with that woman???!!!"

"Anyone that would be for that kind of shit is fuckin evil!"
