Ayn Rand: The Author People Love to Hate

This author found Atlas Shrugged to be inspiring and appalling in equal measure. Inspiring in the message that the individual has a right to do for themselves and to wish to earn a profit and to do so without a lot of nanny statery. Appalling in the notion that the underlying Judeo-Christian morals, values and ethics that make such capitalism work - and work stupendously - may be discarded in favor of whatever works for the individual - which is just moral relativity - which is the other extreme position and does not work in the long run any better than nanny statery..
