My next guest is she is probably one of the most intense, also perhaps intellectual voices in America today. I think provider most unusual and most controversial you'll up and please miss rand. I'm ran the first writer to celebrate capitalism. Novels like the fountainhead and atlas shrugged turn to figure of the entre preneurs into a hero. Her ideas were embraced by millions and still are, but they were also ridiculed and still are this week. I'm ran how she still thing. Fine ran became famous for her philosophy of Objectivism, which is a nice way of saying being a selfish asshole. But I'm Rennes philosophy of Objectivism is still leaving its Mark on politics and culture. And none of it would likely have happened had a young Canadian named Nathaniel. Brandon not begun an unlikely friendship and romance with rand three decades after her death the writer, I kn- rand is still the subject of serious debate. And not just over how to pronounce her name and ran on wrong. Ran not an ran and ran I n rans told us n ran for the record is on rand and in those three decades after her death her books continue to sell more than three hundred thousand copies year. So critics may dismiss her out of hand. But as contributor sandy Bork tells us in part two of rec- res the long. Arm on rand they're missing the point my philosophy. Emphasis is the concept of man as a heroic being with his own happiness as the model of his life with productive Chieveley. He's noble activity, and the reason as he's up to. Rand was twenty one when she fled Saint Petersburg for America. The Russian revolution was a disaster for her family. She saw her father lose everything he'd worked for his whole life. When the great depression hit the US capitalism appeared to be broken and collectivist thinking was on the rise. Uprise in Dade came to private it became related prize. Three at upper.

Is that my own standards you intend to fight against a whole. Well, if necessary her work was largely panned by critics, but the negative reviews. Only intensified is passion to set America straight a passion fueled by her young acolyte and lover Nathaniel, Brandon, as I said those words, I love you. I knew that my life had changed irrevocably. I'm I met Nathaniel in March nineteen fifty at that point she'd been writing the novel that would become atlas shrugged for almost seven years. She wanted her novel to inoculate America against the evils of collectivism. The working title was the strike. And it sort of came from two things Jennifer burns teaches history at Stanford University, and is the author of goddess of the market on rand and the American right? She was given access to all of on rans, private letters and diaries. There was a lot of labor, unrest and strikes immediately after World War Two, and there is rest in California. And in Hollywood, and she was opposed to the strike. And then she said, well, maybe all go on strike, and she that oh, wait a second. Interesting. And that's where that experience of her father kinda came back and she began thinking about well, what if I went on strike what if it wasn't the workers in the factories that went on strike, but what if it was the capitalist who ran the factories? Atlas shrugged is a distortion story set in a not so distant future where American businessmen and entrepreneurs are fed up with increasing government regulations in light of recent events. I'd say your position is untenable would've been transfer of four thousand tons of Reardon metal to Kim dander in clear violated the fair share mandate, we've done you.

He's not in it to make money. He's not in it for a profit. There's many many scenes when he turns down the opportunity to make money in order to be a creator and an artist.
