Interesting. This is applicable also to myself.

BTW, it has come to my mind in the meantime an acute and vivid
judgment by Giulio Prisco on Rand's works and discourse in general:
"As far as libertarianism is concerned, Ayn Rand is to Milton Friedman
what in music Richard Wagner is to cool jazz". :-)

I quote by heart, Giulio is welcome to correct my memory if he reads that.
