    With only two real answers, you have an all-or-nothing poll here. That's one big problem with polls...

    I expected teh subtitle to be "Bait" (where's del?)

    Look on you tube for the Rand and Rand Society videos. Rand actually comes across as a person I would like talking to, but would feel very sorry for. So lonely.

    Her acolytes are very much entertaining and they destroy most opposing factions with great skill.

    gotta love Phil, he was so much fairer than any media figure then or since.

    Objectivism has some good points. The poll is too black and white.

    The problem with objectivism is that it would never work in the current U.S. of 300 million people. It would be a disaster.

    On the other hand, if you had a small society and assembled the type of people John Galt manages to put together, it would probably be the ideal.

    Black and white, just like the choices in November. :D

    But seriously, if you don't think it's a scalable model, then it's a steaming pile of crap. Trying to find an in-between opinion is a fool's errand.
