The headline and portrait accompanies a bizarre hit piece on Rand by Jennifer Burns, who claims Rand’s work “occupies a vaunted position in modern Republican thought”—and today's US election therefore “should go down as a referendum on the long conservative fascination with Ayn Rand.”
I can only say, “I wish!”
Jennifer Burns wrote a biography of Rand that eloquently demonstrates Oscar Wilde’s dictum for such things: “Formerly we used to canonise our heroes. The modern method is to vulgarise them.”
Her hit piece amounts to much the same.
