Because I’m loathe to pull punches, I’ll admit to liking Atlas Shrugged, and Ayn Rand, in college.
Some of her non-Atlas writing, especially about the Soviet Union, was pretty spot on. (I was, and remain, pretty hawkish on all things Soviet, including modern-day reincarnations. I’ve never been a great fan of bullies.)
And ironically, as John Oliver points out in the video below, Rand was pro-choice and really didn’t like Reagan.
Sadly, a lot of really bad people like Ayn Rand nowadays. Which would make anyone with a soul think twice.
John Oliver takes Rand on in his ongoing series: “How is this still a thing?”
