A perspective on Ayn Rand

From XKCD:
I had a hard time with Ayn Rand because I found myself enthusiastically agreeing with the first 90% of every sentence, but getting lost at 'therefore, be a huge asshole to everyone.
It is true that Randianism has some rather perverse suggestions for human behavior and some rather idealistic assumptions about how actual human beings will act in the face of competition.
