If memory serves. . . .

She branded altruism as evil specifically because it was selfLESS, and thought sacrifice of the self was the ultimate evil. For her, doing things for selfish reasons was good. In her view, the ONLY reason to help out others (where it is going to cost you something important) is if the person you are helping is more important to you then the other values you are giving up (be it time, money, risking danger, etc . . .). I think it is safe to say that Rand reviled and loathed all forms of altruism and selflessness.
