Goshdarn Liberal should read Ayn's first book, "We the Living". Only then will she understand "Atlas Shrugged." In my blog: www.MusingsbyMarian.com I discuss how Rand started life under communism in Russia. All her writings are a warning about setting our feet on the red brick road. “I am a little astonished at times, that too many adult Americans do not understand the nature of the fight against Communism as clearly as I understood it at the age of 12; they continue to believe that only the methods are evil, while Communist ideals are noble. All the victories of Communism since the year 1917 are due to that particular belief among the men who are still free.” This statement rings as true today as when she uttered it.
