    The real hero of Reagan Conservatism was William F Buckley Jr. Bill, and anyone who ever studied critical thinking, thought Rand a simple minded opportunist whose ideas would not be accepted because her logical flaws are readily transparent, and objectivism would be embraced primarily by those she disdained. If you read Atlas Shrugged or Fountainhead and felt you were one of the elite because you were one of the few able to trudge through a thousand pages to get the core idea that was then restated in 50 or 70 pages, you were not one she would have approved. She was an iinteresting creature of her time, but really a blowhard who had to spoon feed her audience lofty ideals while making them feel special.

    Bill Gates is a philanthropist who champions education. I’d say no.

    Ayn Rand is what happens when you let highbrow critics rate books rather than the readers. Atlas shrugged and so did I. Don’t visit thr Fountainhead Cafe. Coffee sucks

    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged . One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” — John Rogers

    @pshearer: THANK YOU for being another of us who think! I’m saddened by the ignorant knee-jerk smearing of reason shown in the comments. Atlas Shrugged has sold more copies than any book other than the Bible. . . . .and it is my bible. For one who thinks, reasons, and can integrate abstractions, there is no rejecting Rand since she is right.

    You made my morning. :-)

    You just had to do it…. your implication is that if you believe in personal responsibility, smaller leave-me-alone government you are a merciless, unfeeling robot? No wonder we now have our very own dictator in the white house. disgusting.

    This is understandable, given the current political climate, but too glib, and unfair to Ayn Rand. I wonder how many of her critics have ever actually read her work.

    How easy for a white male in this institutionalized racist country to say you should live your life for your happiness, your values and your success while working fervently to prevent that opportunity for non-whites and women.

    I do not enjoy reading the comics to be preached to or lectured to by anyone in entertainment. Entertainers…and that includes comic writers, should always protect their brand since you are bound to insult half of your readers.

    I am deleting this comic for this reason.

    Reading the comments to today’s strip reveals how uninformed and just ignorant many people are….

    I didn’t much care for Fountainhead, but Atlas Shrugged, just like Battlefield Earth by L. Ron Hubbard were good reads, despite their authors’ philosophies.

    @davidh48 … I agree about Battlefield Earth by the Hub … I’ve read it about 10 times – love long sci-fi stories … of course how a sci-fi writer got a religion going is beyond my comprehension. gotta consider the source always … (ooh, that’s gonna rile up some conversations, I bet … )
