When Did Ayn Rand Die?


Is "Rand" Paul named after Ayn Rand?

How funny would that be? Lol! I was thinking "RAND" corporation, or Rand McNally too?

His name is Randall Paul and he is not named after Ayn Rand, although he is a fan.
AS a child he was Randy but his wife changed that to Rand.
Link provided, this is himself answering the question.

Did Ayn Rand really die broke?

Did Ayn Rand really die broke?

~~~ What, if true, delicious irony that such a selfish, self-centered, self-justifying capitalist pig, with no philosophical ability, would die broke and empty...

So much for her 'philosophy' (self-justification)!

If true...

Easy enough to find. try Wiki...

Ayn Rand - pronunciation?

How do you pronounce the first name of novelist/philosopher Ayn Rand? I've been told by three different people that it rhymes with "main", that it rhymes with "man", and that it rhymes with "mine"... Does anyone know definitively?

How do you pronounce "Ayn"?
"Ayn" rhymes with "mine."

Excerpted from a letter to a fan, 1937:
"Your letter inquiring about the origin of my name has been forwarded to me. In answer to your question, I must say that 'Ayn' is both a real name and an invention. The original of it is a Finnish feminine name. . . . Its pronunciation, spelled phonetically, would be: 'I-na.' I do not know what its correct spelling should be in English, but I chose to make it 'Ayn,' eliminating the final 'a.' I pronounce it as the letter 'I' with an 'n' added to it." Letters of Ayn Rand, page 40

"How To Pronounce the 'Ayn' in ' Ayn Rand'
"Ayn" rhymes with "Mine". I heard it pronounced on an audiotape narrated by Nathaniel Branden, who should know. A pretty good mnemonic for the author of The Virtue of Selfishness, don't you think"

Do you believe that this quote by Ayn Rand is true?

I found this quote today from Ayn Rand: "Evil requires the sanction of the victim." Does that sound true to you?

Try asking a rape victim that one and see how that turns out for you.

And Ayn Rand was a fascist, and it is no wonder that Republicans like her writing so much. Every single one of her books follows a pattern.

Someone "wakes up" that he or she is being oppressed, and finds a way to escape the oppression. Once finding freedom, he or she thinks back on all the friends lost because he or she ran away. He or she decides to help free them also.

Here's where things take a turn for the worse.

Anyone who does not join up with the "freedom movement" will be eliminated in glorious "cleansing" when the main character decides that anyone who disagrees with him or her hates freedom and must die if freedom is to be achieved.

Fascism is reborn out of the ashes of "Fascism."

Ayn Rand's problem, and by extension the Republicans' problem, was not that freedom did not exist...it was that they were not the ones doing the oppressing (yet).
