Ayn Rand Sucks

Okay, so it's not exactly a thorough and considered critique, but I believe it adequately sums up my feeling about Atlas Shrugged. Having finally slogged through that intellectual sucking swamp, I now believe that there is no crap so foetid and stinking that "Objectivists" won't swallow it and call it cream pie.

Now that you're done with the brain-flogging, how about something FUN to read?

Next up, the fulfillment of a vow made by a European Jew upon escaping the Nazis and making it to America. His vow was that he would attest to the glory of a young French Catholic girl and her faith in action.

If ever there was a remedy to Ayn Rand, it's Franz Werfel.

This makes me happy. I know that we do not have the same views on politics. We can agree that Ayn Rand was out of her flipping mind.

I think we are still in disagreement. To be out of her flipping mind assumes that she has a mind to flip, of which I remain profoundly unconvinced.

I just think she had access to an endless supply of cheap liquor, a functioning typewriter and a chip on her shoulder the size of the Chrysler Building.
