Personal Quote:

The difference between a welfare state and a totalitarian one is a matter of time. See more »

Trivia:

Her philosophy of "Objectivism": Rational selfishness is a virtue; altruism (self-sacrifice) is a vice. See more »

Trademark:

In her books, characters often give very long speeches, sometimes stretching over dozens of pages, explaining their philosophy of life. Rand used this as an opportunity to elaborate Objectivism, the philosophic system she is credited with creating, but also to showcase her view of other philosophic systems whose characteristic concepts conflicted with those of Objectivism.
