Sales of Atlas Shrugged Soaring Under Looter Government
I doubt Democrats thought that getting a choke-hold on Washington and holding the private economy hostage would reinvigorate sales of Ayn Rand's masterpiece. It's one of the top books on every collectivist's book-burning list.
No time like the present to arm yourself with the finest moral defense of capitalism and indictment of collectivist machinations ever written.
I'm probably preaching to the choir here, but if you don't think you're ready to dive into the world of Atlas Shrugged (whose portrayal of politicians and their various crimes committed in the name of "social concern" unfortunately reads more like nonfiction), it's time to stop putting it off.
