"Greedy bastard" or selfish?

Colbert a href=”http://www.comedycentral.com/colbertreport/full-episodes/index.jhtml?episodeId=221300″talked about “going John Galt”/a on his show last night (about three minutes in). Naturally he makes fun of it, and does not seem to understand it from either a moral perspective, or as a form of protest. However, at least it is getting some attention. And as threatened as left-leaning types seem to be by the term, it must really strike a chord. It strikes me as odd that if you work and make money, you’re a selfish bastard and if you stop working hard and making money, you’re a selfish bastard. Which is it?
