The Evil of Altruism

Ben Bayer

Presented at: AynRandCon Brazil 2019

Date: Sep 14, 2019

Everyone knows that altruism - selfless sacrifice for the good of others - is the essence of virtue, right? But what if, as the concept of "selfishness", our understanding of the true meaning of “altruism” and “sacrifice” is completely wrong? What if these ideas are really destructive and harmful? From Ayn Rand's perspective, all our thinking about the Morality needs to be radically rethought.
