@katherine it was never required reading but I knew libertarians who told me I had to read the fountainhead before I was allowed to tell them off, and that shit worked for some reason, so I did

@katherine i read anthem in english 102 in community college, alongside several other, better examples of dystopian lit.

i talked a lot about how the book was shit. i did get an A in that class

@katherine I enjoy reading rand because as time wears on the premise of much of her arguments is less a cautionary tale of collective hubris and simply a reality of american capitalism.
