The truth is not for all men, but only for those who seek it.

ERR...

She wasn't quite that old.

I don't think so anyway.



So much for serious quotes.

I don't doubt that, but I seriously doubt he had Ayn Rand, in particular, when he penned that line.


BTW, the line is, "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned." And it was not penned by Shakespeare.

The origin comes from, "The Mourning Bride, by William Congreve."


I looked it up.

Sounded like Shakespeare. But good to know.

You may have missed it, but I don't think anyone here thinks any quote from Rand is serious. A former communist and all that. Well, you know.

Also, an illegal alien. Her student visa expired and she was only granted amnesty through marriage.

She was never a communist.

If you knew the first thing about her or if you had read ***ANY*** of her writings you would know that.

A basic premise of her philodophy:


"I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I shall never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine."

~John Galt,

A character in Ayn and's novel, 'Atlas Shrugged'.

"philodophy"

That sounded about right. I will use it from now on when discussing rand's philodophy.

She knew Marxism very well, she lived under it.


If you want to understand what she went through may I suggest that you read her novel, 'We The Living'?


It is about a young girl before and after the revolution and her trials and tribulations.

She is tied up with two men. She loves an aristocrat and she uses a member of the communist party.

It is an interesting read.

BTW, if you use the "word" philodophy it real;y does not exist so that would negate everything you have to say about her philosophy.

Yay Ad Hominem? What's wrong with the quote listed? Seems true to me.

You need to learn when you are being baited. She was born in Russia, so idiots that don't know when the revolution occurred assume she's communist.

She was educated at communist post secondary institutions and did study Marxism.

A adhom only if you despise communism more than say the Chicago school of economics.

Uh, if the reason she isn't being listened is because of studying Marxism and not because what she is saying is a crock of shit, then yes, it is Ad Hominem. Attacking her instead of what she is saying is Ad Hominem

The reason she is not worth listening to is because she was a giant vagina.

Just ask around.

My first point related to it being open to debate if calling someone a communist is an insult or not.

I did not call a chicago school freakonomist for example / which is undoubtably a pure insult.
