I'm a well-read Army Veteran and Registered Nurse (NICU) of many years. I am here to learn exactly why everyone is so excited about Ayn Rand. I find it vaguely amusing, I'll admit in a smug sort of way, that people who purport to be so proud of being selfish go through so many painful contortions of "philosophical thought" to justify and rationalize being so. That seems suspiciously like shame to me. For the record, calling Ayn Rand a philosopher is rather like calling rap music...but that's just my personal opinion, which is of course open to change.
I truly am here to learn. I'm just not going to lie or kiss anyone's backside in the process, but I will be as polite as possible. I'm not here to be a "griefer" or to be some infantile flame war participant. Ad-hominem attacks are no more welcome on my screen than straw men or any other logical fallacy, so this should be interesting.
