" The double standard of selfishness is at the core of capitalist thought. Selfish whims are not compatible to what Rand means in her application of rational objectivism. However,it seems that should one misinterpret the axioms of objectivism, the ego may be driven to trap the masses in a never ending cycle of fear and consumption while a small few gather the spoils. Objectivism works for capitalism because it seems to justify injustice. I reread this book to keep track of our nation's neo robber barons. Although I appreciate the struggles of being a female intellectual in a male driven field, I am NOT a fan of Rand. "
