Anthem by Ayn Rand

Atlas Shrugged gets most of the press nowadays, but Ayn Rand has another work that perhaps serves as a better introduction to her works. Particularly for younger folks, Anthem provides a glimpse into Ayn Rand’s sense of life that is far shorter and more accessible than Atlas Shrugged. Amazon’s description provides a decent introduction: Written with […]

Objectivism in Practice

A very nice piece on John Allison and BB&T, in the National Review, of all places: Objectivist Philosophy for Fun and Profit: John Allison isn’t your typical bank executive.

More Positive Ayn Rand Coverage from the Non-Objectivist Press

I’m very impressed lately with the amount of very positive press on Ayn Rand and Atlas Shrugged, not always from the obvious places: Peter Foster: Atlas shrugs, leftists rage: Alan Greenspan was indeed once part of Ayn Rand’s circle, but Rand would have seen his monetary policy as not just flawed, but immoral Novelist Ayn […]

Nice Little Video on Atlas Shrugged and the Tea Party Revolts
