Today we are revisiting. Especially seeing the NPD with Amber Heard. Clear as to why she idolized Ayn Rand.
Heard declared herself an atheist after being introduced to the works of Ayn Rand and has said of Rand, “I’ve read all of her books. Ever since then, I have been obsessed with her ideals. All I’ve ever needed is myself.”
Rand supported rational and ethical egoism, and rejected altruism. In ethics, she argued for rational and ethical egoism (rational self-interest), as the guiding moral principle. She said the individual should “exist for his own sake.” She shows more than a few sociopathic tendencies as well as a consistent admiration for selective psychopathic qualities.
In Rand’s early notes for The Fountainhead: “One puts oneself above all and crushes everything in one’s way to get the best for oneself. Fine!”
Of The Fountainhead’s hero, Howard Roark: He “has learned long ago, with his first consciousness, two things which dominate his entire attitude toward life: his own superiority and the utter worthlessness of the world.”
In the original version of her first novel We the Living: “What are your masses of humanity but mud to be ground underfoot, fuel to be burned for those who deserve it?”
Rand supported a child kidnapper and murderer because he was independent and had the same motto as her, “what is right for me is good” and she praised his “independence” and said the masses just hated him because of his independence (nevermind that he kidnapped and murdered a young girl). Rand completely defended him and his crime.
Rand also was racist towards Native Americans. Amber Heard is the one that stated she loved and supported ALL of Ayn Rand’s ideals. After her best friend died in a car accident when Heard was 16, she declared herself an atheist. It was soon after the accident that Heard’s boyfriend introduced her to Ayn Rand, which either precipitated the conversion or reinforced it. ‘I’ve read all of her books,’ says Heard of Rand. ‘I have been obsessed with her ideals. -E Online.
Yet Amber Heard was seen wearing Native American jewelry after spending time around Depp.
