Ayn Rand: The Unknown Ideal

With appropriate modifications:

"No [thinker] in history has ever proved [her] value so eloquently . . . as [Ayn Rand] - and none has ever been attacked so savagely, viciously and blindly. The flood of misinformation, misrepresentation, distortion and outright falsehood about [Ayn Rand and Objectivism] is such that the young people of today have no idea (and virtually no way of discovering any idea) of [their] actual nature. . . . [They are being attacked] in a manner of a nightmare lynching - as if a blind, despair-crazed mob were burning a straw man, not knowing that the grotesquely deformed bundle of straw is hiding the living body of the ideal."
