I’m very fond of Ayn Rand. However, I never had much use, even as a teenager long long ago, with the official Objectivist cult and all its seminars, lectures, personalities, feuds and excommunications. I did not think all that much of Nathaniel Brandon, and I always thought Peikoff was a sycophant.
Someone forwarded this video yesterday, which I thought quite amusing. Despite the fact that I had never heard of Yaron Brock, and I don’t actually know precisely where he sits in the Official Cult hierarchy, at Peikoff’s right hand? somewhere below the salt? I’ll have to look him up sometime on-line.
