Judah Ginsberg, The Examiner Atheism |Atlas Shrugged |Capitalism |Egoism |Individualism |Paul Ryan | Representative Paul Ryan said in 2003, “I give out Atlas Shrugged as Christmas presents, and I make all my interns read it. Well,... I try to make my interns read it.” Atlas Shrugged, for those lacking the patience to wade through its nearly 1,200 pages of dense prose and equally dense pseudo-philosophizing, is Ayn Rand’s magnum opus. Published in 1957, it contains Rand’s most extensive fictional statement of Objectivism, her philosophical justification of unbridled and unregulated capitalism.
