Nietzchean though it is expressed, has many points of contact with
anthroposophy. She experienced the human spirit but never broke
through to experiencing the spiritual world THROUGH that.
Her 'Objectivism' is still useful for people who need to have a
stronger sense of self---but is not good for any who have too strong
a one already!

Forgive me for bringing up an old post, but I found this view of Ayn
Rand to be fascinating. It has been my understanding that
Objectivists are Atheists based on the idea that "reality precedes
consciousness" -- hence there can be no God. Objectivists claim that
one cannot be both a Christian and an Objectivist. I would be very
interested to learn where Objectivism meets Anthroposophy and how Ayn
Rand "got it wrong".
Thank you so much!
