Lifeson … noted the significance of “Anthem” in a 2013 career overview with Guitar World. “We were trying to be quite individual with Fly by Night, which was the first record that Neil, Geddy and I did together,” he said. “That song was the signature for that album. Coincidentally, the name of our record company, which is Anthem Records in Canada, came from this song. Neil was in an Ayn Rand [author of The Fountainhead] period, so he wrote the song about being very individual. We thought we were doing something that was different from everybody else.”

Ayn Rand, sì andiamo a scomodare proprio la vecchia signora di Fountainhead, ci ha raccontato con i suoi eroi, che la libertà e la sua conquista non è comoda. È una battaglia continua contro l’onda del conformismo. Howard Roark è il giovane architetto della Fonte Meravigliosa (Fountainhead forse si sarebbe potuta tradurre meglio) che si batte come un pazzo per il suo gusto estetico.

…the extended, torrid rape of Dominique by Howard Roark in Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead augmented rather than diminished Roark’s appeal in readers’ eyes. As for his “victim,” this independent woman is thrilled by Roark’s assault, which she interprets as love but also (this being a political novel) as acknowledgment that she is an intellectually worthy consort for Rand’s ideological god figure.

One of the Missouri Plan’s original architects was Harold Laski, a famous British Marxist upon whom Ayn Rand based the villain in The Fountainhead. As I have explained … this method of selection was (like other progressive programs) designed to give “experts” — in this case, the left-leaning lawyers who dominate the organized bar — the bulk of the decision rights in the selection process.

It doesn’t qualify as an actual disease, but some suburbanites are willing to build a relationship around a mutual admiration for the Ayn Rand novels “The Fountainhead” and “Atlas Shrugged.”

“I am fit, but very curvy. I’m a laying by the fruitbowl in an Italian painting kind of woman, and quite frankly that is how I like to be,” reads the profile of a 44-year-old Mundelein woman who is looking for a man on TheAtlasphere.com and knows what she wants. There are no “long walks on the beach” or “getting caught in the rain” among her turn-ons.

In this book’s pages, we also meet many Hollywood figures who did their best to resist these Communist efforts, among them Ronald Reagan, Allan Ryskind’s father Morrie Ryskind, and Ayn Rand, a Russian emigre who became an ardent anti-Communist because of her experience growing up in the Soviet Union.

The author of “We The Living,” “The Fountainhead,” and “Atlas Shrugged” testified before Congress about the propaganda-soaked movie “Song of Russia,” written by two devout Communists, Richard Collins and Paul Jarrico.

…at the heart of much modern architecture, like much modern art, is the Nietzschean conception that we can create our own value system. It is not for nothing that the ‘hero’ of Ayn Rand’s despicable book ‘The Fountainhead’ is an architect.
