Ann? Ane? Ayne? Ein? Is it Ein Rand?

Trying to digest objectivist philosophy is like trying to push your face through a concrete wall. It wont fit and it'll just make your head hurt.

Most philosophers at least make a half-hearted attempt to put their theories into terms people with no particular expertise in their field can understand. Rand and the Objectivists seem to have made a concentrated effort to do just the opposite.

I wont pretend to have much of an idea about what the hell she's talking about. If there's a good point anywhere in this painfully long stream of conscience rant someone should do me a favor and put it in terms a simple economist can understand.
