Ann Rand was not writing arguments based on facts but social science kind of garbage that I despise.

Let me help you out here with a concept: Rand was a fiction writer, and yet her stories are remarkably prescient. In other words, her "facts" didn't happen until decades later, which we call prophetic or prescient. She drew on her life under communism as an inspiration. Frankly, I don't think you've read her work, I am calling you out here for reading something "about" her work and using that as an excuse not to read it. Your "social science" garbage statement makse zero sense at all. And by the way, it's Ayn, not Ann.

“Ann Rand was not writing arguments based on facts but social science kind of garbage that I despise.”

Since you don’t even know it is not “Ann” and your entire intellectual comment was simply, “dumb”, I HIGHLY doubt you ever read it nor understand it. Her writings were based in fact since she grew up in the Communist Russia during the days of the revolutions and as an adult knew the Socialists of the day and what they were saying. Her writings were warnings of the ideas of the Marxists and what they desired for govenment.
