Seem to be voting for itWhere do I disagree with Ms rand Well she was very much a my way or the highway thinker She herself had little patience with those who disagreed with her as her attitude seems to be that they just couldn t or wouldn t see it Also I m a Christian and she seems to have seen little difference between putting others before yourself willingly and having the State force the view that veryone must While My Soldier Serves exist for the State There is some argument by Objectivists that she saw the difference but simply rejected religious belief That could be the case as I noted I m not a student of MsRand s philosophy I ve simply read her work and some little about herWherever you stand or whatever you think about the woman herself this is a book I d recommend It has some value and can have theffect of making us look at what we have before we lose it I rate it a 3 as it s not uite as readable as some of her later work it is her first after all and can get dry Still it s worth a read Here s the thing this book is fucking awesome I m a big fan of this theme the whole individual vs the state story I think most of the books I ve read in this vein were descended from 1984 but this is without doubt my favorite xecution of the familiar thematic focus This book was just so vocative for me it did an incredible job of capturing the crushing force of living under a sociopolitical regime that cares not for the wants or needs of the individual I found something incredibly uplifting about this tale of unrelenting downward pressure It was simplybeautifulI ve recommended it to i don t know how many people and very few people I ve ver met have read "it but this book is one of my top 3 no doubt I ve never ven "but this book is one
