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.

yeah, I know she was a fiction writer, yeah I haven’t read the book in the last 30 years. When I did read it I was about maybe 22 and I thought it was awful. Don’t get people panting over how fab it is, but that’s what makes horse races.
