True, there is indeed a cultish fringe to the Ayn Rand
phenomenon. But that's true of everything and beside
the point. It does not invalidate Objectivism, not does
it necessarily follow from it. Cultists would be cultists
regardless whether the messianic figure is Marx, Jesus,
Buddha, Ayn Rand or Elvis.

Some folks are simply waiting for the right thing to set
them off.
