This video is a broad overview of the philosophy of Ayn Rand. It goes over themes covered in her two most famous works—Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead. It looks at the so called “Five Pillars of Objectivism” and goes over some in depth. The basic idea behind Objectivism is rational self-ineterest, the notion that you should put yourself above all else. This stems from a belief in objective reality and man’s capacity to reason. The politics of Objectivism are Laissez Faire Capitalism.
Rand thinks people like Immanuel Kant and Peter Singer are essentially evil.
