I’m going to preface this with a few comments. What you are about to read is the product of my brief cranial musings after following the instructions of an e-book on blogging. Please don’t judge me too harshly. =]
Will anyone read this? I doubt it. Just sitting here, thinking about what I should write. I feel like I have something to say, but I don’t know what. I like sharing my opinion on things I like, like movies, music and other entertainment. I’m an Atheist and that is a huge can of worms. I’m a Libertarian and there’s another controversial aspect to me that is usually met with negativity. Here’s the kicker; I think Ayn Rand was a genius. I’m seeing many of the things she wrote in Atlas Shrugged coming to pass today. And yet, she is vilified and hated and attacked viciously. People I encounter on social media claim to know her work and dismiss her (but not before they mount a vicious attack on her, and by extension, me). I feel these people do not have a realistic grasp of what Capitalism is, or any clue as to what “rational selfishness” means. Everyone thinks they are an expert on philosophy. I also think I have a story in me. There is my personal story, certainly. I’m 58 now, so that story is a bit long, but I’m talking about a fictional story. Maybe one that blends fantasy with Randian objectivist ideals?
