My intent is to use this blog to document my current read through Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged and to analyze it, praising and criticizing as seems appropriate. The book overwhelmed me many years ago, and I was a huge fan of it and Objectivism, generally speaking; however, I know that my way of thinking about the world has changed over time. I haven’t picked my copy of the book up in over ten years, I am sure, so I expect it will be an interesting journey.
I expect to annoy people across the political spectrum, and both fans and detractors of Rand and Atlas. I welcome anyone to post comments, but ask for calm and mutual respect, at least in the sense that Voltaire said “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. *”
Why is the blog called “Forget Truth”? See https://forgettruth.wordpress.com/2014/06/07/why-this-blog-is-called-forget-truth-2/.
*Although I understand that that was a summary of his attitude by a later writer rather than a quote.
