Barbara Brown, The Examiner Atlas Shrugged |The Fountainhead |Capitalism |Personal life | I run into many who were Ayn Rand fans in their younger days. Since I enjoyed both her books and her philosophy writings, I always ask more about that. Some of her ideas are profound. I was especially drawn to her comment that smart kids went off bright-eyed to college expecting to encounter like minds and instead came up against the specter of post-modern fuzzy thinking that left them with either damaged brains if they bought in or damaged ability to connect to those around them if they didn’t. However, Rand was inherently a very flawed person, perhaps from psychological damage inflicted as she fled the Russian revolution.
