Ayn Rand and The Morality of Altruism


  1. Note: there is a spelling mistake in one of the title slides!

    No one can explain the problem with altruism better than Rand, so no need to expand.

    However, for those who STILL do not get that altruism means total self-immolation and duty, as opposed to being nice and gently helping others, I suggest this essay which sorces the original meaning per Auguste Comte and shows that if anything Rand 'goes easy' on Altruism.
