That said, this book isn’t virtdu what it sounds like. I liked the discussion about the importance of property rights. Her ideas on humans and what makes them human as opposed to brutes and how humans prefer to turn off their intelligence and not think really resonated with me. To those who ask it, my answer is: Nevermind that factory owner built factory with moneys acquired through inheritance from estate built on slavery and slaughter of natives.
And she calls that philosophy! From the ten-point list in the mail I just received: This is the freedom of contract, and the Non-aggression principle coupled with a theory of value based judgment with your own life ehoismo the basis for that value.
There is that extremism again. Altruism ain’t all its cracked up to be. Her detractors would claim that there is little to distinguish her fiction from her philosophy: Trump probably won’t become the Republican nominee, but not because most Republicans reject his premisses.

As if to be self-centered needs to be praised or called even virtuous! The description was bleak and harsh.
Part II of multi-part review series. For starters it has an uncharacteristically provocative title. The title of the book is slightly misleading as most people have no true philosophical understanding of what is “selfishness”, immediately thinking of the irrational blanket understanding of individuals acting in grotesque mockery of true dep interest, often harming themselves in the process.
Ayn Rand was not afraid of turning conventional wisdom on its head. Whatever they rznd be in morality, there are no rights sans law–and rights in law may be worthless if there are no remedies such as the weak remedies for Fourth Amendment violations make that beautiful set of rights somewhat worthless.

Many years ago when I first moved into this house, I very sensibly put all the philosophy out in the spare bedroom where nobody would ever have to look at it. Objectivism is deeply anti-Christianity, and anti-religion in general.
La virtud del egoismo/ The Virtue of Selfishness : Ayn Rand :
So why give it five stars? She’s a little myopic at times. Ayn Rand is an event. I also liked the chapter on racism quite a bit. If people cannot claim the fruits of their labors as their own, they are completely at the mercy of the government.
La Virtud Del Egoismo
This is Rand’s philosophy, and if this is selfishness, than selfishness is indeed a virtue. I liked the book for it’s sheer brutality in removing the goody goody things that we are supposed to do in living in social setup.
