If Karl Marx represents the extreme left, Ayn Rand is the messiah of the extreme right-wing ideology that many believe is barbaric and evil - Objectivism. Marxism and Objectivism need to both become perjoratives that will help voters make a quick judgement on a prospective elected official. Objectivism is not an obscure notion that can easily be discarded. It is at the core of Reagan’s trickle-down economics, the economic system that has been in place for 34 years and ruined the lifestyle of the middle-class. This is serious.

…comments hold frightful echoes of the statists Ayn Rand describes in Atlas Shrugged, officials and bureaucrats who would shackle the productive power of individuals to what they perceive to be the “public good.”.

Atlas Shrugged readers remember Galt’s Gulch as the rural refuge where Ayn Rand’s Real Men of Genius spurned American socialism for their own anti-leftist paradise. Some inspired libertarians have set up a real-life Galt’s Gulch in Chile. Unregulated capitalism, though, is presenting some problems!

Huxley’s utopian apparition contrasted that of George Orwell’s 1949 dystopian narrative, “Nineteen Eighty-Four,” and that of Ayn Rand in her 1957 work, “Atlas Shrugged,” but all three were, and remain, significant expositions of the loss of Liberty and its inevitable terminus in tyranny.

Ryan’s response was peculiar, not so much for what he included on his list but for what he excluded: There were no books by crackpot political philosopher Ayn Rand.
