Ayn Rand on charity:
It is altruism that has corrupted and perverted human benevolence by regarding the giver as an object of immolation, and the receiver as a helplessly miserable object of pity who holds a mortgage on the lives of others—a doctrine which is extremely offensive to both parties, leaving men no choice but the roles of sacrificial victim or moral cannibal.
The University of North Carolina at Charlotte on a donor's request that Atlas Shrugged be included in a course on "Ethical Capitalism" in the "Ayn Rand Reading Room":
This is offensive. This is an affront to academic liberty. Ayn Rand was a quack. Please give more in the future.
