Hate to contradict someone who's on my side, but this is simply untrue, or I'll eat my hat. Can you quote an reference for this? I've read everything Rand wrote (I think), I subscribed to the Objectivist (in its several incarnations) and the Ayn Rand Letter and still have every issue of these publications. Nowhere do I recall her stating that the concept of society is nonsense.

Unfortanately, she did write that anarchy is nonsense. Well, nobody gets it right every time...
