My thanks to Thaedeus Zefuldar on Facebook for this marvelous quote.
"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course,...... involves orcs."

Have you actually read Atlas Shrugged? I wouldn't mind discussing it with you, but if all you want to do is ridicule it, it would be a waste of my time.

It's been quite a long time, but yes I have, and it's a waste of anyone's time.

Thanks for admitting up front that I'd be wasting my time looking for an intelligent discussion with you.

Ahhh, since I don't like something that you do, I am not intelligent. How sweet.

Only if you write the perfect song that could bring about world peace but refuse to play it for anyone because you don't think you'll get enough money... then bring about global annihilation because you're pissed about your theory that you might not have gotten enough money for your song. That would definitely be Going Galt.

Thanks for the dead-on quote. And I actually did read them fairly close together many years ago. I guess you can guess which got re-read over and over.
