    Who are the anti-Objectivists today?
    “The Postmodernists are in fact neo-Marxists, yet another iteration of the “New Left,” for whom language, ideas, and debate are not a quest to understand reality—they scoff at the idea of “objective reality”—but a weapon in the battle between oppressors and oppressed.”
    We can call them, Anti-Ob.

    All good comments. It is in fact an outstanding, unforgettable feature of Ayn Rand's prose. It would not have worked had the terms not been (metaphorically) precisely applicable and at the same time colorful. It took me a long time to see this as a very distinct aspect of Ayn Ran's style.

    "Who can forget the “moochers,” “witch doctors,” “evaders,” “looters,” “pull peddlers” and their “blank-out,” “whim worship,” and “concrete-bound” mentality?"

    And "the Fascist New Frontier"...
    Doesn't that sound like "Green New Deal"?

    The naming of the heretofore unidentified was one of Ayn Rand's greatest strengths. ewv recently pointed this out with regard to the definition of duty.
