I cant watch this video (because at work I dont have the administrative privileges I need to upgrade my player, and at home I still dont have internet access), but its supposed to be Jon Stewart interviewing Jennifer Burns about her new book on Rand (so I did see it on tv the other night).
Why the right’s use of Rand is self-defeating:
Jon Stewart: “She would have a totalitarian state of individualists.”
Jon Stewart: “[Objectivism] almost sets up a hyper-society above people who can’t attain that kind of greatness.”
Jon Stewart: “She was a[n] intellectual and considered herself as much; and that is so scorned by the more popular wing that uses her as their intellectual foundation.”
But please, Eric Cantor, keep handing out Atlas Shrugged at tea-parties.
I mean really, even if Rand was a good idea for the right, wouldn’t Anthem be more accessible?
The right is hopeless.
