Not that we won’t make plenty of other mistakes, but they’ll run more to Nietzsche than Rand.
Come to think of it, the eternal recurrence test is probably just right for bedtime stories, isn’t it?
I don’t know – I haven’t read it, but from what I hear, Rand’s 80-page solliloquey in one of her books 9Atlas Shrugged?) should be enough to put anyone to sleep, while being so incoherent that no child should be able to figure out what is being said.
(I did try to read one book, once, and to be honest I can’t remember more than that it was so fracking boring that I never picked up anything else by her. Later on I discovered her philosophy and am glad I gave up on her.)
This is very funny!
Kids are actually obsessed with Ayn Rand these days, but usually not until they get to college!
