First and foremost, I tried to read Atlas Shrugged. I got it after 150 pages. By page 450, the only thing I could think was, "Why should I keep reading this?" I set the tomb aside and decided that my education in Rand's philosophy, Objectivism, would be better served through her non-fiction.

Now I know Objectivism's theories, applications, practices, consequences, weaknesses like the back of my hand and frequently apply these values to my political-economic decision-making. And this was all before I picked up this little ditty here.

I regularly keep up with Objectivist blogs such as Voices of Truth and other op-eds on the Ayn Rand Institute for Individual Liberty's as well as the Objective Standard Newsletter and other laissez-faire capitalism journals and blogs like the Mises Institute site and Hayek.
