It finally hit me exactly why Objectivism pisses me off so much. The underlying assumption (yes, I'm sure this seemed completely obvious to everyone but me, but it took me a while to put my finger on it) of Objectivism is that all men are not created equal. And the superior people can (and should) do exactly what they want to do.
And this is amazingly un-American, as well as a moral morass. Objectivism is objective in exactly the same way that the Democratic Republic of Congo is democratic.
No wonder the reading is so popular on Wall Street. They need some way to try to justify the amount of money they make on the backs of the poor and middle class.
