I can see why Ayn Rand's obscene philosophies appealed to young, white, affluent, college men in the 60's and 70's. It got them off the hook. It gave them carte blanche not to care, and to feel morally superior to many more than Romney's 47%. What's not to love?
The easiest way to become successful, and to stay that way, is not to care who gets hurt by your efforts to do so. We've created a society in which it's incredibly easy to equate misfortune with immorality.
Mitt Romney believes that it's his divine right to be President, and that anyone who doesn't agree, is in some way flawed - relegated to the 47% who don't matter.
You know - sinners.
They mean to have their Armageddon, their rapture. Even if they have to make it happen themselves. Their objectivism gives them a moral imperative to squeeze as much out of this world, and its resources as they can before the end. Those that remain will deserve what little is left to them.
There is no karma. Nothing to magically set things right at the end of the day. There are people who have spent their whole lives doing harm simply because they can, and, after a long life, get to make their exit safe and warm in their own beds, surrounded by those who, for some reason, care about them. There are others - decent, hard working, honest - who, because of the former, live lives that are often hard, brutal, and short.
