Doctor Tasker is not a strict Objectivist but maintains a strong admiration for the idealogy. Ironically, while possessing an incredible genius across a variety of subjects, she's better at supervising scientiffic research than she is at actually conducting it herself.
Doctor Tasker considers inducting the world's criminals and anarchists to be the biggest mistake her fellow conspirators ever made.
To be fair, she has a point that a number of moral objections to many developing technologies, particularly in genetics, are just nonsense.
Fate prior to the Kingship of Mister Tolliver was primarily concerned with manipulating events in accordance with "destiny" as the Pythias believed that this was the best path for humanity to take. In a way, they were a more mystical branch of the Enlightenment.
Under Mister Tolliver, Fate throws destiny to the wind and simply attempts to manipulate the future to whatever events are most favorable to them.
*The fact that what might well the most philosophy-divided Faction (seriously, they're so blasted sincere that they can barely tolerate anyone who disagrees with them) should bear one of the most monolithic titles is just one of the little ironies that make working for The Conspiracy tolerable - a little shot of black humour coffee style.
