What's the Deal with Ayn Rand and Objectivism?

 Atlas Shrugged, The Fountainhead, Anthem... the writer of these works is a Hero to some and a crazed Evil Harpie to others. Whatever your take, she was a formidable woman by almost anyone's standards. The movement (Philosophy) she founded is known as Objectivism.

Here's the Trailer for "The Fountainhead" Movie:

Ayn Rand: NO!
