The left considers themselves quite “clever”. They say the reason right-wing folks can’t get a show like The Daily Show is because the right can’t be smart & funny at the same time (aka: clever). The video below is what the leftosphere considers “clever”.
The reason it is actually only half-clever is because Rand doesn’t turn college students into zombies. The professors do that well enough. Reading Rand will actually ward off college-based zombism.
Now if only we could get someone to make a video of that happening.
And speaking of Rand, when XKCD posted the “Bookshelf” panels, in the HTML he wrote a quick personal synopsis of Rand’s work as how he found himself “enthusiastically agreeing with the first 90% of every sentence, but getting lost at ‘therefore be a huge asshole to everyone’.”
I think he got that wrong. From my readings of Rand’s essays, you don’t get to be an asshole to “everyone”. Just to those who want you to give them free shit, and those who demand you give your shit to others for free by advocating for and writing laws that force you to do so.
Granted, these days, that is just about everyone. But if that is what he meant, then he should say that and not misrepresent what she wrote.
