Atlas Summit 2012 -- In her book, The Virtue of Selfishness, Ayn Rand exhorted readers to put the word "selfishness" to its true and proper use: to describe the ethic of rational self-interest. Fifty-one years later, it's still an uphill battle to get others to accept this use of "selfishness." Education pioneer and author Marsha Familaro Enright examines the semantic, conceptual and cultural problems with following Rand's admonition and suggests alternatives.
