I've read Rand's non-fiction but never read her fiction so I don't know. Can anyone tell me. Thanks

any reason to say I'm not a libertarian?? I suppose if you had one you would have presented it to bolster your case. Maybe you just forgot??

How about the fact that every fucking post you make is about everything being the fault of liberals?

Der Übermensch.

Rand is merely Nietzsche Lite for Americans; she’s utterly unoriginal.

No, they're not. I'm pretty sure this is why he's saying you're not a libertarian.

So you mean I got it backwards?? Liberals are opposed to government while libertarians seek bigger and bigger magical liberal Nazi fascist socialist government programs to solve all or problems???

Who is John Galt?? He's the guy who licks up the room with his tongue after a santorum party at a gay bath house

santorum: That frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex

When you can recognize that the right shares in the blame, come talk to me.

And I've also seen you praise Friedman.

A real libertarian that knows economics doesn't praise Friedman.

Add to that the fact that the fiction is not particularly well written. Galt comes off as a self-absorbed one-dimensional prick. This is what happens when writers try to idealize a set of values in a main character and don't pay attention to making the character sufficiently human for anyone to care about. Galt is conflicted about nothing. To see the difference read Faulkner or Edgar Lee Masters.

if so you would not be so afraid to say what the right is to blame for??? What does your fear tell you?

as if an idiot can challege Friedman. Why be so afraid to try? What does your fear tell us about your character and IQ?
