This is an excellent book. I learned about the intellectual foundation of eugenics, abortion, and birth control. I recommend this book to everyone.

Thanks for the post.

To see a panorama of people at the heart of the culture of death, have a look at Darwinism-Eugenics http://inbredscience.wordpress.com/euvolution/

Ayn Rand's work continues to do harm, seeing that publishers and distributors in the Left have made her an instrument of progressive objective.

Rand's affectation exposed complexity and convoluted theories that have deceived many; under dedicated examination the cracks begin to show and what appeared significant, cognitive, is in reality an attempt to gain access into fundamental category of knowledge that comes out as pseudo-philosophy.

Manuel G. Daugherty Razetto

Inestability and clashing loyalties, permeate through her life as she learned more about what she originally adhered to, as in the case of her loyalty to Knietzsche.

She seemed to favor the Republican Party and volunteered to work in the election of 1940, for Wendell Wilkie, an ex-democrat that after loosing to FDR, te re-elected Roosevelt hired Wilkie as his personal representative(!).Wilkie was not well regarded by Republicans afterward.

Manuel G. Daugherty Razetto

Her devotion to abortion rights, atheism and avertion to Religion discredit her apparent conservatism which, in my opinion was merely dabbling, incosistency or an intentional desire to use appearences as a disguise.

If she was truly what she pretended to be, why is the Left so interested in promoting her? Her book Fountainhead, signed and dedicated to Ely J. Kahn has been listed for sale at $ 56,000.00; The same book on its 25th anniversary is listed at $ 7,000.00 .

"No man," she emphasizes, "can have a right to impose an unchosen obligation, an unrewarded duty or an involuntary servitude on another man. There can be no such thing as 'the right to enslave.'"

There are large holes in Rand's philosophy and as the author points out, it is unlivable yet I have never heard a credible rebuttal to the above statement. Nor have I ever discovered the right to enslave taught in Christian doctrine. Quite the opposite, in fact.
