    This is Barney

    I think the LID dated her in the fifties but she went by the stage name Randy Annie back then

    Ayn Rand was one tough as nails ex-soviet woman.

    There is an interview she did with Mike Wallace (Chris' dad) back in the late '50s. She was very familiar with socialism, so she didn't have to imagine what we could be in store for.



    Re-watching this thing, it's incredible.

    Two things - 1) Ayn Rand's philosophy is fantastic, and she talks about core beliefs that I wish more Americans adhered to. 2) The other thing is Wallace's overt leftism. And these guys now control all the media.
