Honestly, what's the big deal with Atlas Shrugged? Why do women and rich snobs like it so much?
>>
Point B does not follow point A. Your two statements are unrelated.
>>
>>7578601
>Why do women like it?
Because it's written by a woman.
>Why do rich snobs like it?
Because they haven't actually read it (neither have the women btw).
>>
>>7578618
That's because im asking two seperate questions about a particular topic, you formula-fed virgin
>>
Its a book about tall accomplished men and women who resist the meek that claw at great people insistently.

The only people who actually hate the book are short losers DESU.

That's simple. There is a foundation that freely distributes copies of Rand's works, much like how various churches distribute their respective versions of the Bible. Its sole goal is to further the cause of Objectivism.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayn_Rand_Institute

>ARI is mainly an educational organization, but also has "outreach programs." Its various programs include classes on Objectivism and related subjects offered through its Objectivist Academic Center, public lectures, op-ed articles, letters to the editor, competitions for essays about Rand's novels, materials for Objectivist campus clubs, supplying Rand's writings to schools and professors, and providing intellectuals for radio and TV interviews.[4]

I literally have not met a single woman that's read it. It's usually a guy in a lecture class that takes a two minute break from playing Minecraft on his laptop to chime in about Objectivism.

>>7578683
It was during the 2008-2012 era when Tea Partyism in America was a big movement. Nowadays, not so much. But you can be sure having money is a good first step to disseminating your message.

>Is the book really that influential?
It's really that pushed, how influential it would be without 10mill a year to show it maybe it wouldn't be remembered.
>>
>>7578712
>one of best selling books of all time
>most of the major influential business leader of the last 40 years in America were effected by the philosophy or literal card carrying objectivists.
>HUUUUUURRR im such a fucking retards only things that i hear about on the news exist, and when I stop hearing about it it stops existing.

spot the short/ugly/woman

>>7578721
Which kind of people are pushing it?
>>
>>7578753
t-the people mentioned in the post you replied to, are you doing some next level trolling or something?
>>
I'm thinking of reading this. Will it be worth my while?
>>
>>7578601
It validates their sociopathic pov
>>
It's realism, I enjoyed it a lot of people like to hate on rand but most of the things she says are true
>>
>>7578772
Man here, little more than halfway through it. Meh, the font is tiny and it's a thick book, seems to drag in places, some funny parts, interesting concepts. I suppose I would be reading the bible instead but I'm not religious.
