"You can slam her all you want, but she has had a far greater impact on the WORLD of which you can merely DREAM."

I read her book "Atlas Shrugged" but I can't say I am impressed with her work or her philosophy. I don't see why you'd get upset if other people aren't impressed with her. Most liberals don't get upset if the rightwing disparages someone like Foucault or Chomsky-- and in fact they expect it.

Her protagonist and villain are too black and white and her philosphy of individualism is too simplistic. He novel didn't have any subtleties in message, driving home the message like with a repeated strikes of a bat on the reader's head.
