Ayn Rand Institute Fellow: Ayn Rand Bigger, Better than Jesus
That rascally Ghate is still at it, for better or for worse, recently coming out to say Ayn Rand is better than Jesus.
Writing for Fox News, Ghate makes the ridiculous argument that Rand's hyper-individualism is better for the United States than the wimpy Nazarene's lovefest. "If we are to reject the welfare state as immoral and thereby restore the American dream of individualism," Ghate wrote, "don't we need a rational morality that challenges the centuries-old creed of self-sacrifice and instead argues for the individual's moral right to his own life and happiness?"
Yeah, because all that Sermon of the Mount shit never did anything to help this country, right? Amazingly, Ghate dismisses the hallmark of Christianity and its subsequent gospel of care.
His essay is the best example of why most sane people consider the Irvine-based Ayn Rand Institute the political version of Scientology, with an undue worship of a bonkers wacko and a subsequent zealotry of spreading their Gospel that would've made the Apostles seem like the Pharisees...but Ghate himself, from what I remember, is a nice-enough guy.
