    That was a very good book that I don't really remember.  It was like a 1984 or Fahrenheit 451 dystopian novel, but again I don't think I was a good enough reader to get much from it.

    •  Anthem (1+ / 0-)

      was garbage. I read it in High School. Its only virtue was its brevity compared to the doorstop that is Atlas Shrugged. It is, if such a thing is possible, even more strident and two-dimensional. The kind of shit 8th graders love of course. Like the band Rush, who IIRC based a song or an album on Anthem.

        Rush, though, have a much broader, more humane outlook (even liberal in a way) than Rand did.  They are Canadians, after all...  ;-)

        The '60s were simply an attempt to get the 21st Century started early....Well, what are we waiting for? There's no deadline on a dream!
