Coeur d'Alene Press (ID) Atheism |Atlas Shrugged |Individualism | While we don't think "Atlas" merits a mandate to become the only novel that's required reading statewide - that should remain the judgment call of individual districts - [Sen. John] Goedde is correct in his desire for future generations of Idahoans to sip from Rand's cup of ideas that were somewhat revolutionary in her time and continue to influence many Americans. [....] Read “Atlas Shrugged.” Admire it. Disagree with it. See its shortcomings. Learn from it. But most of all, heed its creator’s warning: Read it because you want to, thinking maybe it will help you in your pursuit of happiness. Don’t read it because government says you must.
