In the meantime, Don Watkins has a good post at Voices for Reason which quotes Atlas Shrugged:
"Yes, this is an age of moral crisis. You are bearing punishment for your evil. But it is not man who is now on trial and it is not human nature that will now take the blame. It is your moral code that’s through, this time. Your moral code has reached its climax, the blind alley at the end of its course. And if you wish to go on living, what you now need is not to return to morality . . . but to discover it."To paraphrase John Galt: Are you listening, Sally Kern?
