The Nation *Gets* It: The Real Problem in Today's America is Ayn Rand Cult

notes The Nation’s holiday season subscription pitch,
which slags Ayn Rand thusly.

Har har har.

Because lord knows the real problem these days is the outsized
influence of the authoress of Atlas Shrugged.

Because as we all know that Rand wanted federal spending (under
Republicans and Democrats) to double in nominal terms and to end up
staying above $3.5 trillion a year; she hoped that a liberal
progressive president would declare the right to unilaterally kill
anyone he says is a threat to the good ol’ U.S. of A.; she lobbied
for a conservative-majority Supreme Court to rule that the
government can’t just regulate whatever existing commere there is
but can force also force citizens to engage in commerce; and like
The Nation in a recent article, she fretted that the Communist
are insidiously taking over the American university

Yeah, Ayn Rand and good old Uncle Norm are the problem in
21st-century America!
