DjangoStonereaver: "There are two novels that can transform a bookish 14-year-kld's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish daydream that can lead to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood in which large chunks of the day are spent inventing ways to make real life more like a fantasy novel. The other is a book about orcs."

Blathering Idjut: Personally, I find it heartwarming that the garbage Rand wrote has seen such little intellectual purchase.


I remember in one of my ethics classes at college, one of the students asked "Will will be learning about Randian objectivism?" or something along those lines. The professor responded with "This is a class on ethics, so no. Greed is good is not an ethical philosophy, its an excuse for selfishness."

She didn't write books denouncing social security. She wrote them to denounce looters and leaches.


Which is very much how the right wing views the whole welfare/Social Security/Medicare thing.

Atlas Shrugged and Fountainhead are masterpieces. But if you want to understand where Ayn Rand was coming from, you have to read We The Living. I suspect most people who rip on Ayn Rand are just going with the crowd. I can't imagine someone slogging through 1000+ pages of her work and walking away hateful. That doesn't make any sense.

I remember leaving this gem on an Audible "recommendation" of Atlas Shrugged on my Facebook page. Wow, do Randians get easily hurt.
