Read it twice already. Great writer.
“Ann Rand was not writing arguments based on facts but social science kind of garbage that I despise.”
Since you don’t even know it is not “Ann” and your entire intellectual comment was simply, “dumb”, I HIGHLY doubt you ever read it nor understand it. Her writings were based in fact since she grew up in the Communist Russia during the days of the revolutions and as an adult knew the Socialists of the day and what they were saying. Her writings were warnings of the ideas of the Marxists and what they desired for govenment.
ok you are not the first to point out that she grew up under Commidom and her name is spelled “Ayn”. If you had bothered to read the thread you would
a. Know I am not a liar and
b. Know that yes, you are right, I HAVEN’T READ IT (SINCE I WAS 22 that is) AND IT BORED ME STIFF THEN
So, now I am led to believe that just like Nicodemus, Ayn was “prescient” and “predicted” what would happen. Well, so was George Orwell and at least his books were readable. So I guess she was a prophet and good for her.
Anyone who has achieved any position of of power in any social hierarchy through any means other than merit inevitably hates Rand's works. America's government-media complex is chock full of Catherine Halseys and Ellsworth Tooheys and they don't like seeing themselves so fully exposed. Rand captured the ethos of the Obama Administration very nicely in this quote:
"We are all equal under the skin. And I, for one, am willing to skin humanity to prove it." -- Ellsworth Toohey, The Fountainhead
