Why am I not surprised? Because I have read some of the books.
The content of the linked article is a bit disgusting but not surprising. Ayn Rand was authoritarian, controlling and heartless. That she would be attracted to a sociapathic killer without a conscience should not come as a shock. What is more disturbing is that a number of business leaders, elected officials and people empowered to formulate economic and social policies and a Supreme Court Justice of our country are so enamored of her. What other "philosophy" could be more heartless and devoid of compassion and ethics than "Randianism?"
