|1.||Ayn Rand effect|
Treating your friends, family, and co-workers like a self-important prick for a short period of time following the completion of any work written by the philosopher and author Ayn Rand. The strength and duration of the effect is directly proportional to the length of the work read.
Co-worker #1: Hey, what's with Steve? I asked him to sponsor me in the Cancer walk this weekend and he told me I was evil.
Co-worker #2: Oh, it must be the Ayn Rand effect. I saw him reading 'The Fountainhead' in the break room.
A vile, pernicious, toxic, disgusting, venomous, rat-brained uber-bitch who gives the epithet "cunt" a bad name.
a.k.a. #1 - The pure hell that can be inflicted on society when a planned trans-gender assignment is botched through medical incompetence (check that Adam's Apple - it's as big as a friggin' b-ball).
a.k.a. #2 - The pea-brained illicit love child of Adolf Hitler and Ayn Rand. 'Slander' = 'Mein Kampf' v. 2006.
a.k.a. #3 - The brown residue that occasionally adheres stubbornly to your toilet bowl refusing to wash down the drain even after repeated flushings.
"Honestly Honey, can you just once go to the throne without leaving those disgusting Ann Coulters behind you?"
|3.||Ayn Rand effect|
What happens when a person first rejects altruist, collectivist, and mystical morality for a rationally self-interested one. It generally lasts a short time, but can have long term negative consequences for the self-interested individual. Until the individual sorts out his new values and long term goals, they walk around insulting altruists and people that value/love them; being worried that they have been taken advantage of by those they previously valued.
Ayn Rand effect:
Son: I've been reading Ayn Rand, and her book has lead me to question all my relationships. She says that collectivism is a sin and thus just because I belong to a race, family, nation or other group, it doesn't mean that it's in my self-interest to believe as they do. I need to have my own objective reasoning.
Father: So your rejecting your religion, family and everything I ever taught you because of a book?
Son: Well, I just don't think it's a justification for a morality anymore.
Father: I'm writing you out of my will. How's that for being rationally self-interested?
The philosophical ideals populated by Ayn Rand that a man (or woman) is only entitled to what he has earned. It also promotes the right to life, a life free from carrying the burden of others. It deplores racism as being "the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism." It promotes the idea that life "can be kept in existence only by a process of self-sustaining action" and therefore a person cannot live a life of stagnation as a second-hander. It states that one loves another for their virtues, and not their character flaws. It promotes rational and fair thought above all else, "A man is to be judged by the judgments he pronounces." It stresses pure morality as a supreme goal even though it’s difficult. It denounces force as a means to make a man do anything. All actions require the voluntary consent of those involved. It states that the purpose of the government is to protect men from criminals, protect men from foreign invaders, and to settle disputes according to objective laws. It promotes capitalism as the best system thus far because it "entails a constant process of motion, growth and progress." It supports the idea that sex should only be shared between two people who fully accept each other. And if this is taken as ser...more...
