I am a curious person…so when I heard about Ayn Rand's book in light of current sociological and cultural issues and dilemmas, I thought I would read the book, Atlas Shrugged. Never read it…never had interest in reading it. I know what it is about – the "worship" of radical self-interest. YES, there are many many many things that Rand is trying to promote that I would never be able to buy into…but her critique of government control and what socialism and statism can do to a society are very relevant to our time. I've enjoyed the book…except that it is LONG…have I mentioned that it is LONG? So, don't worry about me…I'm not becoming an objectivist…rather, just curious about something I've heard about and thought I would personally explore. Hey, if it ever is made into a movie, I'd see it. I'm currently in the final section of the book which paints a picture of a capitalist's "haven/heaven". Very interesting!
