Atlas Shrugged

If your read it in school re-read it with your newfound life experience and maturity.

In case of Atlas Shrugged I guess you could call it "withdrawing", although I'd just call it witholding your genius from others, and using it only for your own betterment and those you care for. It was their way offighting.

In case of The Fountainhead the message is actually to fight, and keep fighting.

Objectivism is peak Jew. It is both intriguing and concerning how many people who might identify as Christian and libertarian fall for that meme.

I loved Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead when I first read them. They are good, but after a long digestion period, they seem not-so-great. The situations and circumstances are too contrived, and the plots are not realistic at all.

Well, they are essentially a kinda contrived delivery system for great monologues. Because that's what Ayn Rand is really great at, monologues.

She was literally fucking the head banking Rothschild, and wrote the books for them, as an insider's guide. You, peon, are slated for death.
