Mother Jones Quiz: “10 Ways to Distinguish a Libertarian from a Rapper”

It’s an article from Mother Jones magazine, so of course it makes fun of Rand. Even if you’re an admirer of Rand’s philosophy (like me), it’s funny if you don’t take yourself too seriously.

I have reprinted the questions in quiz entitled, “Libertarian or Rapper?” The author displays the answers in the article (online here).

1.  Licked whipped cream off the chests of two buxom women at a Leukemia Society luncheon.
