Ayn’s philosophy of Objectivism is pretty tough to swallow if you’ve never been exposed to it, but its the only thing that cuts through the BS today. She’s a follower of Aristotle and reason, and boy do we need more of that today!
I watched the entire 5 part series, and I suggest you do as well!
UPDATE 2019: I wanted to chime in here that it's 2019 and I've spent the last 10 years thinking about Ayn's philosophy. I find it completely misguided. If everyone is selfish and chasing money, you end up exploiting the Earth and marginalized people. That's just not right. Take a look at the current Political environment. I rather favor Stocism over her philosophy now and I admit I was WRONG. Still, this post should serve as a reminder.
