    Yes, perhaps I'm not explaining myself clearly enough. Ok, what are possible ways you could apply 'rational self interest' in a situation like that?
    Describe the situation and I will.

    Ok, there is a burning car, and two people are in it. You can only save one. One is your father, and one is a scientist making significant headway in curing cancer. Who do you choose?

    And, she emphasises the principles of 'reason'. What's the alternative to not using reason?

    I've got the tome that is Atlas Shrugged sitting on my 'to read' pile at the moment. The prospect of a several week jaunt has put me off though; reading Lovecraft at present so it might be a good transition?
