Leftists as well as religious conservatives routinely misrepresent Ayn Rand’s ideas—often wildly so—and then mock the straw men of their own creation. Although one might have expected better from PJ Media, Andrew Klavan and Bill Whittle take the same approach in their recent PJ video.

Genie oder Furie - oder beides? Kaum ein Denker ist so umstritten wie sie: Alissa Sinowjewna Rosenbaum, genannt Ayn Rand. Sie vertritt einen radikalen Marktliberalismus. Und verpackt ihn in schwülstigen Romanen.

Libertarianism is more or less the ideology of Representative Ron Paul, R-Texas, and Senator Rand Paul, R-Kentucky. One of its most famous proponents was “Atlas Shrugged” and “Fountainhead” author Ayn Rand, a perennial favorite of alienated high school students.

Right now, my list of 10 books includes only four books (Vikram Seth’s Golden Gate, Bridges of Madison County, Ayn Rand’s Fountainhead and The French Lieutenant’s woman by John Fowles) that I read in my college days with the rest being ones that I read in the last four to five years.

…still distant, such as the death of the party. If Ayn Rand had ever imagined a Britain that was not so sunk in welfarism it was beyond saving, she might have imagined Carswell as a kind of Howard Roark for Westminster, who will do politics only on his own terms. This is fine in the pages of a polemical novel, and an excellent thing for democracy in a parliament that often appears full of placemen.

…Krugman could not resist taking a swipe at those thinkers that value free enterprise and genuine wealth creation through inspiration over big government and the dead hand of state interference.

There is no shame in forming an economic opinion based on the broad thrust of an Ayn Rand novel. One only has to read “The Fountainhead” or “Atlas Shrugged” to appreciate the danger of the mediocre forever leaning on the achievements of the creative and talented. Her work expresses the advocacy of reason, individualism, capitalism, and the failures of governmental coercion.
