An excellent example of an irrational and arrogant statement:

'Everything we are and everything we have
from the skyscraper to the highest religious abstraction
comes from one attribute of man -
the function of his reasoning mind.'

- Ayn Rand

What use is our 'reasoning mind',
our self-attributed intelligence,
if what we do is obey rules and orders all the time,
follow leaders, watch TV, buy products -
and let ourselves be influenced
by warped and creepy people ?

Is she implying that these are bad or good things? I see them as awful.

Oh, she thinks they're wonderful. Most Hitler/Stalin-chimps do.
