Without it, there would be no Bioshock. Humorously, Bioshock takes objectivism to its ridiculous/logical extreme to show the result of a society that placed the success of the individual ahead of the health and survival of the society itself. Odd how the Ayn Rand Institute cries foul when someone turns their philosophy into the straw-man. Incidentally if you haven't yet, would you kindly play Bioshock?

Atlas Shrugged is an articulate, if wordy, illustration of the idea that free exchange of value is prerequisite to individual freedom.

The author erroneously uses the concept of individual liberty to justify her soulless selfishness and utter lack of normal human emotion.

This book has given countless of selfish assholes fodder for their argument of selfish asshole-ness.

After ably making the case for individual liberty, the author doesn't seem to leave much room for the legitimate claims of authority made by groups of free people desiring to organize their community life as they see fit.

From a literary point of view this book need serious editing, especially the speech by John Galt. The author makes a point, illustrates it through the life of her characters and repeats it to absurdity. While I do not agree with the authors point of view she can be a compelling story teller and the book could have been a good read if it had been cut do to a third its original size.

This book is far too long and ridiculous for a reader to carry characters and ideas throughout the whole text. 20-25 Ideas are so *new* and *refreshing* to grwon-ups too ong and ridiculous.
