it's yet another irony that jay based his entire early worldview and forum namesake on a rand novel, but then claims to hate sheep. and claims to hate academics and pseudo-intellectuals. yet fails to realize that ayn rand books were the single-biggest sheep-cult on campuses when they were in vogue.

I've actually decided to read Atlas Shrugged this summer just to see why anybody would care. I've honestly heard nothing but bad things...

the only reason people cared in the first place is because it complimented all the pop-psychology and pseudo-philosophy at the time. it was a (terribly written and entirely transparent) novel of finger-wagging and overt political explication. it basically massaged the balls of the establishment at the time and was hip-cool and shocking enough to enthrall a generation of young readers. objectivism is a total hack philosophy and hasn't really added anything to the general discourses of intellectual thought, other than a nice paper-weight for tea party members (who probably haven't read it)

Atlas Shrugged is overdone, hand wringing, and butthurt revenge fantasy.
Oh, and there are a few valid points buried in there too.

Good insights, good observations, horribly extrapolated - that is Ayn Rand's motif.

The same points are covered better in the first half of The Fountainhead.
If you put that book down right before the rape scene (about half way), it is a good book about finding a balance between individuality, integrity, and fitting into society.
In other words, a book for the high-school and college aged.

If it's complete shit after I'm 100 pages in I'll drop it.

Lol. I never uttered your name unless it was prompted by someone else. You do not exist in my mind outside of the very brief encounters we have here. Apparently I've made an impression on you and your sycophants since I seem to be all you talk about. Holy shit it's fucking pathetic.

an impression? nope, i just think it's pathetic that you stumble around like a giant oaf in a debate for 10 pages, muttering incoherent shit and making wild-ass unsupportable claims, and then as soon as it conveniently degenerates into mindless shit enough for you to report, you do. that's pathetic to me. so forever to me now you'll be the guy in d&st that is the giant fucking hypocrit. the strict libertarian that clawed his way up to the petit-bourgeoisie by relying on govt. handouts. the guy that knows everything about nothing. the guy that will, at the end of the day, have no qualms about hitting 'report' as soon as he has been humiliated enough. i'd use the word 'pathetic' more sparingly if i were you. for a fatty you're a serious intellectual lightweight.

I reported the thread because Macbeth is a fucktard and I knew it would piss him off to have it closed. He just made it easy. But yes, your preening got old by the third page.

You did it first you asshat. Seriously, if your life is as awesome as you make it out to be, why do you keep coming back here? I use it to kill time at work. You do it to inflate your ego in contrast to video game addicts. How fucking sad are you?
