I actually liked the fountain head. The characters are very one sided and the book more or less qualifies as propaganda; but I thought it was interesting to read. The story, as simple as it is, is satisfying. I don't think Ayn Rand is right though. The fact Humans are so empathetic is one of reasons we became the most successful species ever. The idea that hard work will solve all your problems is clearly ridiculous. It's also pretty unethical to just forget about society's dependents. Single moms, old people, children, crazy people, society has a responsibility to take care of people that can't take care of themselves. I hate the way modern conservatives act like she was a god. They pick and choose when it comes to her ideas. Would she support well fare? No. Would she support invasive and unconstitutional laws aimed at women and gay people? No. She wouldn't support giving money to the poor but she would also never give millions away to huge corporations like republicans are so quick to do.
