Jennifer Bardsley, The Herald (Everett, WA) Atheism |Atlas Shrugged |Egoism |Personal life | My 7-year-old was bragging to certain people that he was reading “The Hunger Games” on the sly. Of course I was concerned, and I remain hopeful that he only got through a few pages. The adventures of Katniss and Peeta have now been safely moved from our living room to the garage. But that got me to thinking about other books floating around our house that could possibly pollute a young person’s mind. Anything by Ayn Rand would be top of my list. Ayn Rand wrote “Atlas Shrugged” and founded the philosophy of Objectivism. She taught that the worst thing a human could do was engage in self-sacrifice.
