Decades ago, when I first read Ayn Rand’s novels, the error in her assertion that people inherently choose self-interest over altruism and generosity struck me as contrary to just about all established religions and advanced societies (religious or not). I find it hard to believe that there is anyone left who still buys into the “greed is good” as none of the promised benefits of that philosophy have “trickled down” to the middle class. I guess the resident is one of the few remaining believers … along with his supporters.
