The hero of the marketarians ...

Any Rand is the heroine of the marketarians ...
Two biographies of Ayn Rand. - By Johann Hari - Slate Magazine

... In her 70s Rand found herself dying of lung cancer, after insisting that her followers smoke because it symbolized "man's victory over fire" and the studies showing it caused lung cancer were Communist propaganda. By then she had driven almost everyone away. In 1982, she died alone in her apartment with only a hired nurse at her side...
I can see why.

You can say what you want - but "Atlas Shrugged" is still the most mind-blowing book ever. :)
