Editors are the looters and moochers of the publishing industry. Ayn Rand would have nothing to do with them. :-)

If you look at everyone's favorite quotes, they all seem to be the philosophical ones rather than anything dealing with plot, character development or description of the scenery. If the novel didn't have the phillosophy, or even worse was a pro-statist novel, I probably would have put it down forever about 20% of the way through. Just imagine a thousand pages of Al Gore Shrugged with the country going through enviromental disasters because all the leftists are going on strike.
