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.

Except I could not force myself to read the whole of John Galt's speech. Put me to sleep every time I tried.

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.

He was a jew, but I don't think he was the "head banking Rothschild." Explain that, if it's true.
