KASS PARC Quote of the Day: What It Was All About
Submitted by administrator on Sun, 2010-04-04 03:09
Rand has been deeply hurt by the charge of being "moralistic." Again, it is Rand's self-esteem that sees through this rationalization at once. They [the Brandens] do not question the truth of Rand's specific moral judgments, but, rather, complain of her "moralism" as such. Their assertion can only mean one of two things: a confession of moral guilt or an expression of moral envy, the resentment against Rand's own moral character.
Rand, still unwilling to attribute an existential guilt to the Brandens, opts for the latter view. In these same notes from May 15, she writes:
This is the charge that stings the most—the one the Brandens saved up for such a special occasion as the obfuscation of their own dishonesty. The fact that this charge is "the most awful" to Rand is itself at odds with the Brandens' accounts.
The end is near.
