Most people would not.

March 11, 2013

Why is Ayn Rand so popular? Her ideas are second rate. Most of them are drawn from Nietzsche. Perhaps she had some view of America from pulp fiction novels concerning the wild west. Against all type she is a romantic. Although that assessment would make her wince. But I wonder if it is because she dares. Dares to say things that in a religious state like USA, most people would not. Dares to look very unattractive. Dares to be aggressive at a time when it was not considered to be feminine. She is the rebel without a cause. The Don Quixote. And people admire this. Even though her ideas are ridiculous.
