I am just re-reading this intriguing novel. I wonder why all her scholars are at each other's throats. It seems a strange thing to do since objectivism is not really widely taught or researched in big universities, so a subject so marginal surely has room for all of them.

I wonder if a strike of the “minds” really could ever happen. The idea is terribly arrogant of course.

I think Ayn Rand's idea that altruism is evil is pretty controversial.

Objectivism was also a significant influence on the people who set up Wikipedia, specifically Jimmy Wales.
