Ellsworth Toohey

Don't you want to know my motive? Not a single one has ever reached it and not a single one ever will. Just as Keating fawns over professors, employers, critics — anyone in authority — so he will toady to the political leaders. Look at any great system of ethics, from the Orient up. To an atheist, personal sacrifice in a search for the joy of god is futility, since there is no god. Laughter is an instrument of human joy. He takes a job at a granite quarry owned by Francon.

The Fountainhead (1949)

ellsworth toohey

Dominique turns her entire spirit over to Keating, doing and saying whatever he wants. The rest will follow automatically. Toohey sets out to destroy Roark through a smear campaign he spearheads at the Banner. This is the two-pronged goal that he attempts to reach: destroy the independent thinkers like Roark, and, by convincing individuals to surrender their judgment and values, turn them into followers like Keating. Though she offers to introduce Keating to Toohey, he initially refuses despite the fact that such an introduction would help his career.

Jane Addams and Ellsworth Toohey

ellsworth toohey

If you married me now, I would become your whole existence. Ellsworth Toohey, a columnist for The New York Banner a yellow press-style newspaper owned by Gail Wynand and author of the popular column One Small Voice, is an outspoken socialist, who is covertly rising to power by shaping public opinion through his column and his circle of influential associates, and whose quite openly proclaimed designs are not understood or taken seriously. The film premiered at the Warners Hollywood theater. Kill integrity by internal corruption. Kill reverence and you've killed the hero in man.

The Fountainhead (1943 book): The Fountianhead: Why does Ellesworth Toohey hate Roark?

No two buildings have the same purpose. She initially believes that greatness, such as Roark's, is doomed to fail and will be destroyed by the 'collectivist' masses around them. This makes one neck ready for one leash. Type 4 altruism is the altruism of power-lust. Did you call it a sense of life as exaltation? Otherwise, one cannot help thinking it is a very silly book. The need of the creator comes before the need of any possible beneficiary.

Twelve other publishers had rejected the book. Since all must serve all. No two sites on earth are alike. Let all live for all. Look at everyone around us. His biggest threat is the strength of the individual spirit embodied by Roark. Its maker gives it the soul and every wall, window and stairway to express it.

It's so hard to stand on one's own record. If you don't understand this, don't try to understand. No man can use his brain to think for another. So kill their joy in living. The freedom to agree or disagree is the foundation of our kind of society—and the freedom to strike is a part of it. His soul gives up its self respect.

What does the character of Ellsworth Toohey stand for, and why did he do what he did to Dominique and Roark?

He defended Roark during the course of his trial through his magazine, showing his true character for the first time. But when one reaches that stage, it's not the object that matters, it's the desire. Remember the Roman Emperor who said he wished humanity had a single neck so he could cut it? Everything's important with you, everything's great, significant in some way, every minute, even when you keep still. Miseries were the coin of their realm, Rand would say. He again mocks her, and she strikes him across the face with her horsewhip. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men.

I'm Ellsworth Toohey!

Animals obtain food by force. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice, speaks of slaves and masters. I want nothing for myself. The point is, who will stop me? Can you see Howard Roark in this picture? So much for future Roarks. I never think of myself in relation to anyone else. And intends to be the master.

Every system of ethics that preached sacrifice grew into a world power and ruled millions of men. In 1992, producer James Hill optioned the rights and selected to direct. Toohey succeeds in conquering both of their souls. Rand's denials have not stopped other commentators from claiming stronger connections between Wright and Roark. There were other positive reviews, but Rand dismissed many of them as either not understanding her message or as being from unimportant publications. Roark is determined to retain his artistic integrity at all costs.

Believe, Katie, even if your mind objects. To lie, to flatter you, to praise you, to inflate your vanity. Men have been taught that it is a virtue to stand together. I can only speak to my own experiences. Your soul, if you wish.
