I've been trying to figure this out for years. What the hell is objectivism? I can't get through any of Ayn Rand's novels (I find her style of writing VERY boring). But I was poking around Wikipedia and was thinking about "Libertarianism" and her name came up. She isn't a libertarian I guess but isn't liberal, conservative or fascist either. What the hell does objectivism stand for? I understand Neil Pert from Rush is a fan of hers but his music doesn't help me either.
