According to Ayn Rand in her book Atlas Shrugged, A FIRST HANDER is a person who is hard working creative and produces things of wealth and value. A SECOND HANDER is a person who takes the wealth of others and redistributes it.

Ayn Rand uses the terms "first-hander" to describe those who think and act independently, focusing on their own values and goals, while "second-hander" refers to those who derive their sense of self-worth and identity from others, seeking validation and direction from external sources. Rand believed that true individuals should be first-handers, guided by their own reason and judgment.
