Atlas Shrugged and the Tea Party Revolts

THIS is an uncharacteristic departure from the usual contents of this blog, and we won’t do this very often, but news of “The Controversy” is scarce at the moment. We focus on that because it’s part of our larger concern with preserving Enlightenment values.

This isn’t really off-topic for us. We announced our overall purpose a year ago when we started this blog: Discovery Institute: Enemies of the Enlightenment.

No writer did more to promote reason and liberty during the 20th Century than Ayn Rand. There was never a time when her work was more relevant than it is now.

This is from from the Ayn Rand Institute. [Addendum: The ARI revised things, so that’s an updated link.]

Check it out. If you like it, pass it on:

  1. …Hmmm.

    Though Rand is an interesting character, she’s also IMHO rather problematical in many ways. And, when it came to ToE, she rather descended into what is most charitably described as ‘word salad’;

    That’s okay. She never claimed to know much science. I’m confident she’d have scoffed at the Discoveroids. Rand was a good ol’ gal, although it’s said she was much better to know in writing than in person.
