“Atlas” flogged — yet again

(I first posted this HERE 04/02/2009)

Here is another erudite article on Ayn Rand’s ATLAS SHRUGGED in today’s (04/03/09) Denver Post: "Atlas" flogged — yet again.  What with the government seemingly taking over just about everything ("We’re from the Government and we’re here to help!"), this unintentionally prescient novel (about the government taking over just about everything)is enjoying a resurgence of sales and readership.

Ayn Rand’s works continue to be a subversive bastion of logic, reason, objectivity, and RATIONAL self-interest. Although I’ve read the 1,000-page Atlas Shrugged twice and listened to the unabridged 51-hour audiobook version once, I suggest Fountainhead or We The Living as more easily consumed introductions to her work. The brand new book OBJECTIVELY SPEAKING, an edited compilation of many live interviews, I’ve found to be a superb introduction to her ideas also. Enjoy.
