Almost anything taken to extremes...<quoted text>
She's an example of an Ayn Rand follower gone to extremes.
I've always thought that it was possible to take Randism to the point she does, we just don't see it that often, thank goodness. It's one of the reasons why I've never agreed with Rand's theories.
Though I think at this point (a turning point for America) we could you some Ayn Rand reading right about now, if only to counter the swing in the opposite direction of Rand.
Gotta say, I think Anthem is a GREAT short story.
