Anthem

2014/07/31

I finally got the time and read Anthem, the 1937 Novella by Ayn Rand. I began reading it from the Project Gutenberg copy, but bought the cheap Kindle edition because it was easier to read on the device. Random thoughts that passed through my mind while reading this fascinating work:

– Gollum
– 1984
– Yoda
Raft
– Kolmogorov
– Sergei Korolev

and finally:

Chuck D singing “United we stand, yes divided we fall”.

I understand where Rand came from (timeframe and fleeing from Soviet Russia) and why she wrote what she did. But I do not have to agree with her last two chapters.
