Ayn Rand's self-declared purpose in writing her fiction was to project the "ideal man" - the man who perseveres to achieve his values, even when his ability and independence leads to conflict with others. Mr. House is an exceptional individual in the Fallout universe and for anyone who's familiar with her works Robert is very much the archetypal Ayn Rand novel Protagonist. Exceptional, Charming, Rational, Conventionally Attractive, Highly Intelligent, modest Ego (doesn't like the idea of being known as a God, just wants to get shit done and people out of his way that have the potential to screw with his plans for Vegas and humanity). Those actions of the few exceptional "great" individuals such as himself further and advance the rest of society such as his plans for outer space. House despises slavery and cares not to interfere with the personal lives of those that do not effect him in any way or to force himself on anyone else whom does not interfere with his plans and makes that clear. Only the BoS faction whom threatened his ideals and freedom he wanted utterly destroyed. Rand rejected the notion that individuals inherently have duty towards one another, such as when House cared not when he pushed all those people from the Strip onto Freeside under the impression it was his strip and that he saved it himself, caring not for those tossed into the Wastes homeless whom had settled there in the meantime as it would disrupt his plans. Any thoughts or opinions to add?
