Thanks – a very interesting article.  I’m surprised at how vehemently Chomsky shrugs her off as evil.  He doesn’t give any explanation in the article; do you have any information about WHY he thinks Rand is evil? 

It's obvious if you read Chomsky's (vast) work on political theory and American social and political history, especially his writings on social security, taxation, corporate welfare, the massive redistribution of wealth from the middle class to the top income brackets engineered by conservative tax policy over the last dozen years, etc, all of which are in vehement opposition to the social darwinism that lies at the heart of Randian economic theories (and current GOP economic politicies).
