Are you looking for somehow who “values your values”?

And by values, I mean the rapacious egoism of Ayn Rand?

Teaching in the US, students will be enamored by her work and I always ask, well, would you extend it to your relationships? (Especially since Rand based several of her heroic characters on a sadistic rapist and killer? And that her “love scenes” are better described as rape?) Now you can find like-minded egoists willing to dispense with that hated notion of compassion, thanks to the irony-inhibited authors of The Selfish Path to Romance: How to Love with Passion and Reason, who recall for us Rand’s dictum that “to say ‘I love you,’ one must first learn to say ‘I.'”
