    Ayn Rand used to do it for me, philosophically speaking; but that was before I knew better...
    Frederick Douglass: Find out just what any people will quietly submit to
    and you have found out the exact measure of injustice
    and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these
    will continue till they are resisted with either
    words or blows, or with both.

    Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn;
    Dont believe them, dont fear them, dont ask
    anything of them.

    I read an excellent piece in the New Yorker about her not too long ago. Very interesting. An odd kind of lass, but boy - what a fan base. I kept thinking of the Bloomsbury Set (but her as Woolf sort of thing.)

    ---Update---

    Aha! This internet stuff never fails to impress.

    The cult of Ayn Rand : The New Yorker

    ---Update---

    Oh, damn - it's not the full piece. Sorry.

    Good grief, it had every cliche in the book. I'll avoid it like the plague. I don't expect it to be in the running for an Oscar on Hollywood's night of nights when a cavalcade of stars come out to shine.

    I was actually expecting one of the characters to say "It's showtime!"

    It really does... The sharp cut to black when blowing out a match. Just how many times have I seen that?
