The Persistent Ghost of Ayn Rand

The Persistent Ghost of Ayn Rand

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

The Persistent Ghost of Ayn Rand, the Forebear of Zombie Neoliberalism

In “Mean Girl: Ayn Rand and the Culture of Greed,” Lisa Duggan, a professor of social and cultural analysis at New York University, notes that, although Rand’s brand of sexual liberation didn’t extend to homosexuality, her female heroines refuse to conform to feminine norms, and her male heroes are all in love with one another.

Казалось бы.
Уж сколько раз показывали миру, НАСКОЛЬКО идиотка эта Маша.
Но разве может светоч демократизма уволить откровенную идиотку ...
