Bonobo Thinking

Ayn Rand Hating on C.S. Lewis

"Ayn Rand was no fan of C.S. Lewis. She called the famous apologist an “abysmal bastard,” a “monstrosity,” a “cheap, awful, miserable, touchy, social-meta­physical mediocrity,” a “pickpocket of concepts,” and a “God-damn, beaten mystic.” (I suspect Lewis would have particularly relished the last of these.)"

-- Matthew Schmitz

This seems like a challenge for those who care for neither Christian mysticism nor Ayn Rand rationality.
