Rand's teaching can lead to an individual freedom from which charity, as a decision by the individual, not coerced by the State (as it is now) can lead to a truly moral act. Without individual freedom there can be no choice to contribute the self or the resources aquired by the individual. When our only charity is coerced we are not satisfying the suggestions of the Church or Christ. Give unto Ceasar does not end our obligation to our fellow Man. If the State controls our resources than we cannot make the moral choice to be our brothers keeper. therefore in rands idea of a limited government unable to coerce us, free will shall reign, and then it is the choice of the individual to satisfy the requirements of their moral impulse.
