24. this came up at the NYU young dems meeting last night
I've noticed there seem to be 2 general types of objectivists.

High achievers who use the "philosophy" as a blinder that allows them to turn their backs on the society and rationalize sociopathic behavior, or the mediocre that somehow delude themselves into thinking that they'd be among those in Galt's Gulch. Both are ungracious little shits that seem to love preaching this crap at every opportunity.

An entire philosophy organized around worshiping yourself is pure and utter narcissism.
