Ayn Rand believed that her author-insertion Howard Roark was so special and enlightened that there'd be a single person in the world who would actually listen to him go on a three page diatribe on the nature of money, as if he had something truly fascinating and novel to say.

You miss my point. In the book, there are a number of examples of people feeling they are owed something. But when pressed for WHY they are owed, they can simply reply "I FEEL I am owed". That is where we are as a society now. Too many feel they are owed a steady paycheck, subsidized housing and free abortions paid for by Obamacare. That Rand predicted that in the 50's is something to appreciate.
