    I'm sick of everyone talking like Socialism would be a bad thing. I want a government that's going to raise taxes enough to provide its people with a free quality education, a solid transportation infrastructure, free unlimited access to Scheduled I-V controlled substances and pharmaceuticals (including a complimentary steady supply of some kiss-ass kind bud), and government-issued U.S. Bongs.

    My my, didn't we all just dip our tongues in some acid today.

    This is basically the extent of my knowledge of Ayn Rand: selfish brooding bitch who made Nietzsche seem like a cheery generous fellow and whose writings are about 60 years out of date and relevance. Also, is frequently mentioned on Mad Men. Would that be about right?

    Come to think of it, maybe the surge in purchases of her book is due to Mad Men? That happened to Frank O'Hara's stuff after they featured a passage from Meditations in an Emergency in an episode.

    Probably. But the Rand fantards won't want to admit it.

    yes, soviet communism and obama are exactly the same thing.
    do these people even realise how ignorant and delusional they are?

    "There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

    That reminds me, there's a really cheery socialist named Jeremy Rifkin who wrote a book called "The End of Work". I think it reads like Donald Fagen's "IGY" without the music.

    The game Bioshock probably also has something to do with it. The plot of the game is similar to Atlas Shrugged (only a million times better) so all of the Bioshock fanboys/fangirls* decided to read Ayn Rand.


    *While I may be a Bioshock fangirl, I couldn't care less about Rand.

    The Randtards were out long before Mad Men. (On a sidenote, Robert Morse brings so much to Bert Cooper - he's a joy to watch).
