I have to wonder that individuals are as free as Rand thinks are or at least SHOULD be. What about all the psychological factors that effect a person while they are young as well as the genetics that go into. The effects of nature AND nurture. It seems that Rand tries to satirize this idea in the Fountainhead when she brings up the Gallant Gallstone but she never really seems to give a real. Does anyone have any ideas on this?


Also, I am an evangelical Christian in high school, yet Rand's work does intrigue me. I don't really think it "s" like some of my counterparts but I believe that she is very wrong on some points and, close-minded though it may be, I think she would have benefited from an aquiesence to Jesus. People say that Rand knows how mankind SHOULD be although that isn't the way he works out in reality. Well, how does she herself know what is right for mankind. Maybe we can't see her noble savage because we've lived under a corrupt system for so long, but how does she know her Howard Roark ever existed or even could exist? Maybe he is an example of the way things are SUPPOSED to be, but if there is no possibility of it actually happening then what is the point of studying it/him?

Anybody out there?
