Q. What books are you embarrassed not to have read yet? A. In moneyland, I’ve yet to read any Adam Smith, Karl Marx or Ayn Rand. In foodland, I’ve never worked from a Julia Child cookbook.

“Making the list has gone to her head, turned her brains to mush and swelled her ego to Ayn Rand proportions,” I hear you mutter at your screen. But no, I haven’t started referring to myself in triplicate, like King Henry VIII. I refer not, shall we say, to the royal we.

In November 2011, Wilson had the phrase “Who is John Galt?” printed on Lululemon tote bags (a line from Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged) without Day’s knowledge, the Wall Street Journal reported. The bags annoyed customers, and Day had to quickly replace them.

Sen. Rand Paul’s office is decorated to look exactly like Orlando’s from “The Wire.” Several frantic staffers rush in with big Ayn Rand posters to distract you, but you spend the rest of your life wondering what you saw.

Lee’s book will be hitting shelves just as another “new” novel will be published by another revered literary hero, Ayn Rand. In December, New American Library, a branch of the Penguin Books USA, announced that a novel by the late Rand would be published in July. Rand, best known for her philosophical novels The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged, first wrote Ideal in 1934 but set the novel aside, writing it as a play instead. More than eight decades after she first wrote it, Ideal will be the first Rand novel published in nearly 60 years.

It’s like inhabiting Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged: Nothing is stated directly, everything elliptically.

The new club on campus, Introduction to Objectivism, aims to give students the opportunity to learn more about a philosophy called Objectivism. Below is a short excerpt to summarize the philosophy…
