"Astute" - observes (who else?) the New York Times, of "Mean Girl: Ayn Rand and the Culture of Greed".

That's much gentler than calling someone whom one hasn't read "the most evil man in mankind's history."

From The Cultural Ascendancy of Ayn Rand by Chris Matthew Sciabarra - Dec 31, 2003. In the WB’s One Tree Hill, Rand’s work was practically showcased in an episode entitled, “Are You True?” The main character, Lucas, is given Atlas Shrugged by a fellow classmate. Increasingly frustrated by his troubles on the basketball court, Lucas is told “Don’t let ‘em take it — your talent. It’s all yours.” By the end of the episode, we hear Lucas’s voice-over as he walks to the basketball court: “Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark.” Reading from the John Galt speech, he tells us, “Do not let the hero in your soul perish.”
