I just love this quote

September 15, 2009

It says what it has to say, and it says it well.

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

What can I say? Ayn Rand (and some of her more slavish followers) fall on the wrong side of the line between political opinions I disagree with but whose holders I respects, and people whose political opinions I hold against them, personally.

Varied sources inform me that this quote originates from Kung Fu Monkey
