I think of Ayn Rand lately as more of a soul-vampire than author/philosopher. I don't want to sound over the top, I am really only speaking from my own personal experience. She is the Ellsworth Toohey of reason - or really, just a Toohey who thought she was being rational, whereas her character from The Fountainhead was apparently being more honest with himself in his philosophy. Rather than describe himself as a proponent of reason, he propounded its exact opposite. Rand propounded its exact opposite under the guise of reason.
