A self-proclaimed Objectivist who does not actually understand Objectivism. Generally follows and parrots a few of Ayn Rand's words (usually only the most well known quotes) like an acolyte follows a prophet. Hated by Objectivists and used as a strawman against Objectivists by haters.
Randroid: "I'm an Objectivist!"
Objectivist: "No, sir, you are not."
A follower of Ayn Rand's objectivist philosophy, with emphasis on the more cultic aspects of the movement. Often marked by exclusivist rhetoric, dogmatic individualism, and determinedly narcissistic self-praise.
That randroid keeps telling everyone how great he is by being "true to himself." Bah.
A person of high school age, typically white and invariably born to an upper-class or upper-middle-class family. Will, upon reading Atlas Shrugged at the recomendation of randroid friend, believe their comfortable position in life to be attributed to their own efforts, talents, and imagined superiority, instead of the five to six-figure income of his parent(s).
If interested in politics, randroids make a point of vocally berating any forms of socialism, not thinking twice of saying people who can't get by without some sort of welfare don't deserve to live, within earshot of students who have after-school jobs out of necesity.
The randroid affliction sometimes lasts into college, depending on whether or not the afflicted recieved a trust fund from their parent(s). If so, randroids can be identified at this point by their difficulty in holding things with their hands, due to the near-total absence of friction caused by a lack of anything resembling calluses. If not, they cease being randroids by getting a job and a sense of humor.
That randroid said me and my family was scum when he saw my mom paying with food stamps, so I gave him a swirly.
A blind follower of Ayn Rand & her philosophy of objectivism.
Randroids are often selfish rich kids who want to justify being rich and economically conservative, or "classical liberalism" and engaging in illegal activities such as drug use and having sex with underage girls.
Randroids will always say shit like "Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow?" regardless of the fact that most of them inherit their wealth as did their fathers, and their fathers before them.
Randroids are never working-class folks getting by paycheck to paycheck, and do not care about such people.
Privatizing everything, from police to schools, is their dream.
To a Randroid, being nice, charitable, altruistic and fair is to be a morally reprehensible person and such things are vices.
A hero to them is a selfish man who takes what he wants, does what he wants and cares only about himself.
Bob: "Why should I care if you're starving?
You're just lazy! Grow some legs and get a job you bum!"
Tyler: "Bob you Randroid, he's a deaf mute! Go spend your trustfund on booze and weed!"
