In other words, this take-down is nothing of the kind since the songwriter attacks a straw man and lies about it.
I would point out that Rand's opinion about tobacco when she wrote "Atlas Shrugged" in the 1940s and 1950s was just that: an opinion. It was not a philosophical principle and is not part of her philosophy, Objectivism. She weighed the possibility of harm against the pleasure that smoking gave her and chose to smoke. Tragically, that did not end well for her although it does provide opportunities for puerile humor at her expense.
I love the song true believers , I've been a fan for several decades .
Keep up the good work.
