Yes, THAT Playboy!

Rand was pretty controversial, as well as highly judgmental about people who do not follow her standards - true to her 'Objectivist' philosophy.

Some notable quotes:

PLAYBOY: Most people seem to go through their lives without a clearly defined purpose. Do you regard them as depraved?

RAND: Yes, to a certain extent.

PLAYBOY: According to your philosophy, work and achievement are the highest goals of life. Do you regard as immoral those who find greater fulfillment in the warmth of friendship and family ties?

RAND: If they place such things as friendship and family ties above their own productive work, yes, then they are immoral.

Ah yes, enjoy I did very much thank you. I have to read much more of ms rand that is for sure.

I just love her attitude. So unusual for a woman of her time, I bet she has an interesting personal story.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass -
It's about learning to dance in the rain.
