As MLK day draws to a close, I’d like to end all this hippie feel-good “I have a dream” flim-flammerie by reminding you of the harsh realities of the Objectivist universe we all inhabit. Actually, no, what I have in mind is this: when I asked for suggestions for new things to do on the blog, one of you suggested that I read all of Ayn Rand’s books and report back, while another suggested a book club.
What if we all read Atlas Shrugged, one chapter a week or so (maybe faster if there’s too many), and then I do a post describing my thoughts on it, then we continue the discussion in the comments. That would be fun, no?
The one catch is that you can’t get Atlas Shrugged that cheaply on Kindle (you can get Anthem for free, but it’s not the same). Has some ambitious young Galtian Eastern European or Indian scanned the thing in so we can all get free djvu copies?
Let’s make this happen.
