really liked it
bookshelves: fiction, philosophy-religion, politics-government, economics
Read in January, 1970

The book is fascinating and a quick read despite its length. Worthwhile!!! She is influential, no denying it.

But she is full of crap: her planet of worthies would consist of fewer than one million humans, because she is, let's be honest, pretty intolerant of her inferiors (which is 99.9% of humanity). I wonder how'd she get there, let them starve to death.

But the book is a must read for anyone who thinks politically for its influence. Yes, Virginia, there are Americans who believe that you should not have been allowed to be born because you are not up to par with the brilliant Ayn Rand. Her very life defines -- fascism.
