In partial defense of Ayn Rand

while what happened to this young woman's family is terribly sad, it is perhaps worth noting that divorce and child custody disputes have a way of bringing out the worst in people. I've personally observed Roman Catholics, Jews, social conservatives, and progressives also act really, really badly in these situations. Objectivism may given the author's father a way of rationalizing his particular bad behavior, but I'm inclined to doubt that Objectivists are much worse than anyone else in these challenging domestic situations.
