Wonkette Games: Mark Sanford In Newsweek, Or High School Ayn Rand Essay Winner?

by Juli Weiner

Mark Sanford reviewed Ayn Rand (like as a human?) for Newsweek. This is a thing that happened! Anyway, Mark Sanford really did not think this whole thing out, publishing his close reading masterwork in Newsweek, as this essay has all the makings of a winner of The Ayn Rand Institute’s annual 8th to 10th grade Anthem essay contest! Grand prize = $85,000, and plus your name and high school gets posted on the Ayn Rand fansite, which will become hilarious for your friends by 11th grade at the very latest. Anyway, see if you can tell which conjectures came from Mark Sanford’s Newsweek essay and which came from the 2009 Anthem contest winner from “Mariemont High School, Cincinnati, OH, USA.” As always, grand prize is an “iPhone,” except the “i” is capitalized and shit because RIGHTS OF THE INDIVIDUAL SDLFJSLDK.

  • A. [The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged] portray the power of the free individual in ways I had never thought about before. Since then, I’ve grown more critical of Rand’s outlook because it doesn’t include the human needs we have for grace, love, faith, or any form of social compact.
  • B. All of us want to make the world a better place for future generations. Unfortunately, despite one’s best efforts, decisions are sometimes made that will ultimately be detrimental to the world and its inhabitants.
  • C. The Fountainhead is a stunning evocation of the individual and what he can achieve when unhindered by government or society.
  • D. Perhaps the most reassuring fact is that there are still people who have not been conquered by the repressive government; people willing to fight for their individuality.
  • E. Rand provides several characters that have not yet been broken by the oppressive regime of the future.
  • F. What strikes me as still relevant is its central insight—that it isn’t “collective action” that makes this nation prosperous and secure; it’s the initiative and creativity of the individual.
  • G. These provisions for the future provide one with hope for a society that will eventually be liberated from collectivism.
  • H. Cold though they sound, these words contain two basic truths. First, an individual can achieve great things without governmental benevolence, and second, one man has no right to another’s achievement. These are lessons we should all remember today, when each week is seemingly marked by another government program designed to fix society.
  • I. Finally, the future for [character] looks brighter once he is able to break free from the oppressive city and establish a place of learning and technology. Each of these examples shows that, if one is willing to work hard, one can, like [character], leave the world a little better than it was when one entered it, and provide lasting hope for the betterment of generations to come.
  • J. I think at a fundamental level many people recognize Rand’s essential truth—government doesn’t know best. Those in power in Washington—or indeed in Columbia, S.C.—often lead themselves to believe that our prosperity depends on their wisdom.

Sanford: A, C, F, H, J

High School Essay Contest Winner: B, D, E, G, I

C. Being a Half starved Pirate in Somalia is a stunning evocation of the individual and what he can achieve when unhindered by government or society.

Well, Juli, someone seems a little unhappy that they only got the $50 “semifinalist” prize for their essay.

Mahousu October 27, 2009 at 5:19 pm

Mark Sanford is never going to be able to fuck Ayn Rand (which was apparently a prime motivation for most of the original Rand-ies), so what does he care?

chascates October 27, 2009 at 5:19 pm

Ayn Rand committed adultery on her spouse as well.

ChernobylSoup v2 October 27, 2009 at 5:22 pm

This fucker couldn’t even get laid by a South American tramp without government assistance.

And I’d bet an iPhone the 10th grader went on to a land grant university, where he still hasn’t gotten laid.

For some reason, Mark Sandford and/or Ayn Rand always bring this song to mind.

Uh oh, is known woman-lover Sanford slowly coming out as a DUMBocrat?

“Since then, I’ve grown more critical of Rand’s outlook because it doesn’t include the human needs we have for grace, love, faith, or any form of social compact.”

WHUT IN THE HECK IS THIS LIBERAL TOUCHY FEELY BOOOLSHIT, MARK? REMEMBER THE 3 R’S: RAND, REAGAN, & RELIGION, RIGHT? NO CONFLICT THERE, NOPE.

Someone got all wussified down Argentina way…

SayItWithWookies October 27, 2009 at 5:30 pm

At least the high school essay writers seem to be aware that Rand wrote fiction — Mark Sanford seems to think she wrote Gospel. Apparently with the Lord and a lobotomy, all things are possible.

queeraselvis v 2.0 October 27, 2009 at 5:30 pm

And Mark: the thing the untrammeled individual in The Fountainhead did was blow up a building. What exactly is good about that, except in the fuck-all-of-you Bin Laden sense? Plus it’s a work of fiction, that is to say: untrue.

mumblyjoe October 27, 2009 at 5:39 pm

So, there’s one pretty obvious thing that makes Sanford an idiot and a hypocrite, and Ayn Rand a smart person, if also evil and a jerk and a crappy writer.

See, Ayn Rand was an atheist. Objectivism, as dickish as it may be (and is!) is reasonably consistent with itself.

On the other hand, claiming to be a Christian, and going on and on about the evils of Collectivism? Moron and hypocrite.

charlesdegoal October 27, 2009 at 5:39 pm

Is a social compact a small Volvo? Ayn Rand couldn’t see the need for one because gas was cheap then..

Redhead October 27, 2009 at 5:43 pm

H. Cold though they sound, these words contain two basic truths. First, an individual can achieve great things without governmental benevolence if he has the family money to afford college, graduate school and health insurance, as well as paying off loans and living expenses that aren’t covered by student loans while in school and then the family connections to get and keep a job in this economy, and second, one man has no right to another’s achievement, unless of course he is related to that man, in which case he may mooch of that man’s connections, money and achievement all he pleases. These are lessons we should all remember today, when each week is seemingly marked by another Republican sticking his foot in his mouth out of pure fear of the assorted minorities in office threatening the Republican way of life by their very existence.

Fixed!

AbstinenceOnly Ed October 27, 2009 at 5:44 pm

[re=444888]shadowMark[/re]: Ayn Rand might have been Grendel’s dam disguised as a slutty cutthroat soviet expat hack. Because really, what’s more preposterous, monsters or libertarians?

[re=444894]mumblyjoe[/re]: Oddly enough, Objectivism’s extreme conclusion is in fact Altruism.
In other words; sacrificing oneself out of respect for other’s freedom despite the fact that certain government programs, etc. would work in one’s favor.
It all boils down to:
“I’m freezing on the street, starving and screaming at the voices in my head because I don’t want to infringe on anothers success. I’ll just keel over and die to defend the rights of others to exploit, disenfranchise and ultimately kill me. RON PAUL 2012!”

Zorg October 27, 2009 at 5:50 pm

While Alisa Zinovyevna Rosenbaum done pretty good for an immigrant gal, she is primarily known as the author of one successful popular novel with a philophastering message and a second message novel that was not so successful but did get made into a movie. That she could, as an atheist and a civil libertarian, be celebrated by today’s Republicans is one more sign that the Republican Party is headed for the ash heap of history (The main sign, however, is Newt Gingrich’s declaring that the barely-high school educated Rush Limbaugh as the intellectual leader of the party.)

Paul Tardy October 27, 2009 at 5:51 pm

So did Alan Greenspan ever have sex with Ayn Rand? Or is that just a rumor?

Any 9th grade english teacher worth a damn would stop reading Stanford’s tripe after his second line confession to either not having read Rand’s work or being an alien.
FACT 1: “In my experience, people who’ve read Ayn Rand’s books either love them or hate them. ”
FACT 2: “I’m one of the few who fall somewhere in between”

CONCLUSION: Mark Sanford is either not a person or he has not read Ayn Rand’s Books, as we know that any “person who has read Ayn Rand’s books either loves them or hates them.”

Conservative luminary!

Because it never gets old:

“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

Lionel Hutz Esq. October 27, 2009 at 6:06 pm

Does Sanford ever mention that the best thing about Rand is that you can have dirty sex whenever you want, because there is no God?

AnnieGetYourFun October 27, 2009 at 6:08 pm

[re=444921]Heywood Jablome[/re]: It’s funny because it’s true. The real danger are the people who read both and believe that they can live in both.

Why must everything be so hard?

Snarkalicious October 27, 2009 at 6:14 pm

[re=444859]ManchuCandidate[/re]: More or less. Presidents, Senators and members of SCOTUS alike were all whores to Carnegie, Rockefeller, et. al. But without the collective power and legitimacy that those whores provided through the ausipices of constitutional power and electoral mandate, such men would have amounted to petty warlords at best. Ayn Rand can go ahead and report to the 1974 Pork Futures Warehouse to await the rancid bacon wrapped poisoned rat-dick log, now with 2xMSG I had put on order for her. Bring a fork, bitch.

Anyway, it should be a requirement that anyone who reads an Ayn Rand novel must also read Mary Gaitskill’s “Two Girls, Fat and Thin.”

I searched all over the reference section of my library for these “Atlas Shrugged” and “Fountainhead” socioeconomic studies that were apparently conducted in a peer-reviewed, academic setting, but couldn’t find them anywhere. I’m just kidding, of course. I live in Orange County, CA. My library does not have a reference section.

Ah, one would have assumed the complete meltdown of the capitalist system not once but twice in a century, along with two world wars primarily fought for capitalist investments, plus an entire wing of the US military created to quickly mobilize to protect overseas investment of the capital class (otherwise known as the US Marine Corps) plus the TARP funds being balanced on the books as profits this fiscal year in order to pay out bongo bonuses, would have killed Ayn Rand’s horseshit dead. But no! We are the land of Sarah Palin, where up is down, black is white, truth is lie, ugliness is beauty, individualism actually exists!

I read it and told her it was sick and told her why I thought it was sick. She agreed with my observations but still liked the book. But like I said, she was a Republican.

Every time I see that picture of Aynny I at first think I’m looking at the ugly older sister of Bette Davis. And Davis, by the time she reached her 40′s, used to chase cars and howl at the full moon.

The Ayn Rand Institute, being of a collective nature, should self-righteously choke itself out of existence or face eventual embarrassing extinction.

It has always been the conservative hard-on for “individualism” has always been the biggest turn-off of the ideology, to me. It’s inherently and unapologetically anti-social in every meaning of the word. It takes us back to a time when we were just barely removed from trees and setting out on the African savannah. I don’t now about you guys, but I don’t ever want to go back in time that far.

To be fair, I’m black, and whenever folks talked about what time they’d like to go back to if they had a time machine, my threshold was the 1960′s in modern time, and no later than the 15th century in historic time.

The one thing that always seems lost in any discussion of Rand is not that her philosophical notions are infantile and serve to justify sociopathic behavior, it’s that she is such an incredibly terrible writer. Her prose sings only if you compare it to, say, the Shaggs.

So we have Little Markie Sanford talking about achievement. What a thrill, from someone who has never achieved anything in his life. Here in South Carolina we are treated to continuing details of his schedule as governor. He wasn’t missed for days after he left for his jaunt to Argentina. If someone hadn’t squealed to a legislator who despises him, even his own staff wouldn’t have thought there was anything unusual in a week long disappearance. Yup, Mark Sanford, a monument to individual achievement.

sham69 October 28, 2009 at 10:34 am

K. Since Rand’s central thesis is that an individual’s duty is only to himself and to what he can acquire for himself, there should be no consequences and repercussions if an individual slinks of to South America to acquire a piece of ass. That man should be lionized! Also, smoke as much as possible. It’s totally cool.

Being a Cincinnatian, I am not surprised that a Mariemont student is into Ayn Rand. There is nothing but white bread in that ‘hood.

>Teabaggers

So nice to refer to people who want freedom by the sex act of sucking on a man’s balls. That utter disdain for other people’s opinions, and abject ignorance of some people’s genuine desire for freedom, is expressed in the average Leftist’s desire to force their ideas upon everyone else.
