It usually begins with Ayn Rand – @asi

Here’s a nicely considered piece on the impact and appeal of Ayn Rand, from the Adam Smith Institute’s Eamonn Butler.

I trudged (and trudged and trudged) my way through Atlas Shrugged.  It’s maybe a thousand pages too long and, as Eamonn comments, no work of great literature but it has an appealing kernel that’s inspired a couple of generations of thinkers.
