I love Atlas... but dear Ayn should have used an editor.

Anthem is just as powerful in 1/10 the size.

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

About the only thing in Atlas Shrugged that would have to be updated in 50 years is its focus on railroads. The politics and power lust in Washington have only gotten worse since then.

Then Ayn should have edited it herself. Don't get me wrong, I love that book, but she uses 1,000 words when 100 would have sufficed.

That, and having to drive 200 miles to make a long distance call. ;-)
