Plus the Ayyn Rand club on campus would then feel less daring. Because the pursuit of one's own vision, despite (nay! in brave disregard!) of the needs of the many is totally, like, daring.

My personal opinion is that she's a lot more on target with her economic policies than she is with her philosophy.  Her philosophy really serves her economic view point, not the other way around.

I'm only familiar with her philosophy.. what were her economic views? Wikipedia here I come.
