Lexicon: the Second-Hander 4/5

Taylor Schilling as Dagny Taggart in "Atlas Shrugged" part 1
A [second-hander] is one who regards the consciousness of other men as superior to his own and to the facts of reality. It is to a [second-hander] that the moral appraisal of himself by others is a primary concern which supersedes truth, facts, reason, logic.

Lexicon: the Second-Hander 3/5

In Galt’s speech, below, Miss Rand discusses the second-hand nature of the psychology of mystics:
A mystic is a man who surrendered his mind at its first encounter with the minds of others.

Michael Lerner as Wesley Mouch
in "Atlas Shrugged Part 1"
After centuries of being pounded with the doctrine that altruism is the ultimate ideal, men have accepted it in the only way it could be accepted. By seeking self-esteem through others. By living second-hand.

A decade after the first political murder in the Netherlands in modern history - of the right wing politician Pim Fortuyn - the critters are once again crawling out of the woodwork in order to drop a few poisonous memes into the culture.
