AYN RAND 02/02/1905

How will you celebrate Ayn Rand's birthday? A good preparation is to read Michael Berliner's article, Ayn Rand: A Legacy of Reason and Freedom.

Born 100 years ago in Holy Mother Russia and educated under the Soviets, Ayn Rand became the quintessential American writer and philosopher, upholding the supreme value of the individual’s life on earth. She herself led a "rags to riches" life, wrote best-selling novels that championed individualism, and developed a philosophy of reason that validates the American spirit of achievement and independence.
