Rand and Crowley, sitting in a tree

Upon rereading this essay on Objectivism, the following quote jumped out at me:

[Rand] could be abrasive, she could make sweeping generalizations that needed explanations that she did not provide; she made very little effort to understand someone else's intellectual context and to build a bridge from their context to hers.


Sounds remarkably similar to a certain bald-headed magician many of us know and love, now that I think of it. And oh, how both of them would cringe at the comparison, most likely.
