As far as I can tell the people who are so moved by Atlas Shrugged that they want to be an Ayn Rand follower, are missing several very important points.
- They are not John Galt and never will be.
- They are not Ayn Rand and never will be.
- Ayn Rand would most likely call them to their faces, "corrupt mediocrities."
- Ayn Rand may have despised the negative aspects of collectivism but she was also an authoritarian and insisted that everyone believe as she believed.
- Her followers are just that, Followers;
- Ayn Rand hated people who followed other people.
