This review is from: The Romantic Manifesto (Signet Shakespeare) (Mass Market Paperback)
After reading several on-line reviews of Ayn Rand's books at Amazon.com, I come to realise that there are the two usual categories of people doing the reviewing: the one's who love her ideas and the one's that hate them. Fine with me, but why can't the people who hate her give any other arguments that she is 'fascist', 'dangerous' or 'takes a strong grip on her readers'? Fascist - she is not (look up a definition of fascism in any dictionary), dangerous - for whom?, and the 'grip' she delivers is a positive sense of life and that, of course, captures a lot of people. I believe that Mats Landstrom (from Sweden) and others with him should try to ask themselves what it is that they 'hate' about Ayn Rand and when doing so they will hopefully reach an answer about themselves (or of their psyche), and how they see life. Then they (hopefully) could give any reasonable, authentic 'arguments' why they dislike Ayn Rand - instead of all the predictable, untrue, and highly non-personal views.
Thanks for listening to my words. Think about them.
