The prominent distorter of truth, Michael Lind, has graciously posted another serious writing disguised as a spoof on the pages of Salon: ”How Did Ayn Rand Become a Hero to Right-Wing Nerds Everywhere?” The article is full of strategically placed quotations from a few Rand bashers, set up to make Rand appear to be an aloof crackpot, with no [...]
