I did a book report on "The Fountainhead", I think it was, when I was in grade 10. It impressed me, as indicated in the review, but it also repulsed me as it warred with my socialist tendencies. I think you know which side won out.

Gold."Fuck you, Ayn Rand. Fuck you for turning some of the most open and interesting people I ever met into utopian dickheads.Fuck you for injecting them with a sneering sense of superiority, and with the tautological belief that anyone who didn't "get it" was a jealous know-nothing—which, ipso facto, only proved that superiority.And fuck you for prose so bad that the only way to measure it is with a meat scale.There. I feel better.But wait—Ayn, you know that letter I just got informing me that my equity line of credit is being frozen despite my perfect credit history, and despite the fact that I bought a house I could actually afford? Yeah, fuck you for that, too."Thanks for posting this.
