Ayn Rand was probably some sort of a nutcase, but she identified these people pretty accurately in Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead.
The advice received from around the world is that we should downplay America in the World Trade Center memorial of the atrocity of 9-11, and focus more attention on the American repression that came after.
We probably will, and that will make the ground doubly afflicted with atrocity, first by the savage throwbacks who destroyed the place, and once again by the self-aggrandizing weasels who have continuously enabled and excused terrorism as a legitimate cultural expression, and condemned American's feeble attempts to protect democratic and capitalist cultural values.
Too bad we don't still have latrines. Because if we did, we'd at least have someplace warm to put these people.
