Ayn Rand on Love

The audio above is from a 1959 interview with the revered Ayn Rand. In her words:

You love only those who deserve it. Man has free will. If a man wants love, he must correct his flaws and he may deserve it. But he cannot expect the unearned.

As you’ll see in the video, her philosophy on love alone, not to mention her broader philosophies, is in direct contradiction with what Christ espoused. In fact, the interviewer mentions Jesus and loving all, being our brother’s keeper.
