Over drinks, perhaps, Ms. Rand?

Tell me what a man finds sexually attractive, and I will tell you his entire philosophy of life.
-- Ayn Rand, quoted in New York magazine.

The degree and nature of a person's sexuality extends into the highest pinnacle of his spirit.
-- Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil # 75.

... Yet another confirmation of what a philosophy professor told me (himself quoting Dr. Johnson): what is good in Rand isn't original, and what's original, isn't good.
