    Ayn Rand: Some interesting stuff for those who like to look back on the thoughts of others. She predicted we would end up with a dictatorship and in financial disaster ... interesting stuff from 50 years ago.

    Yes, talking heads have been throwing around "Atlas Shrugged" comments for a while now. I have never gotten around to reading it myself. I actually have a hard cover version. But, I need some time to get through it so I've never started. I read The Fountainhead about twenty years ago and loved it.

    I'm an Ayn Rand fan, I like Fountainhead better than Atlas Shrugged though

    She's probably rolling in her grave at the past 10 years, and especially the past 6 months

    Doubt if I will ever read Ayn Rand.. do not suspect there is a lot of gratuitous sex or violence...

    couple of things come to mind, glad I listened:

    1. Mike Wallace is an incessant bore.
    2. The use of the male pronoun is obvious in this 50 year old video.
    3. When I was undergrad, had the opportunity to study with some who were a whole lot left of center, remember extensive discussion about how the role of Gov't was to perpetuate itself... guess that is classic anti Ayn Rand.
