    Any Ayn Rand Fans?

    My best friend is in love with Ayn Rand and has read all or nearly all her work. Can anyone suggest books by someone else as a good gift idea please?
    Thank you

    How old is your friend?

    W/O an age, I suggest 1984, Animal Farm, Brave New World, Fahrenheit 451, and V For Vendetta (movie and comic). All of these are on the same theme but from better writers. (Well, Moore is iffy, but that work is great.)

    Give him/her a copy of One Piece. Really fun anti world government pirate fiction. He/She'll get hooked.

    「The Sanscrit language, whatever be its antiquity, is of a wonderful structure; more perfect than the Greek, more copious than the Latin, and more exquisitely refined than either, yet bearing to both of them a stronger affinity, both in the roots of verbs and the forms of grammar, than could possibly have been produced by accident;」.-Sir William Jones

    "Unintended Consequences" by John Ross.

    Fun fiction revolving around liberty and what happens when it is circumscribed for "our own good". Main character kills a small load of government agents, so there's something for everyone.

    I've read nearly everything she wrote and am not a fan. Rand was hubris on steroids, a zionist, racist and advocate of terrorism.

    It's non-fiction but I really liked Peter Schiff's "How an Economy Grows and Why it Crashes".

    If you want to keep people away from Libertarianism take Ayn Rand...

    Why do so many people here hate Ayn Rand? She's very similar to Ron Paul in her views. Same thing with Peter Schiff.

    Ayn Rand hated everybody! That doesn't mean a thing. But the fact is that her philosophy was very similar to Ron Paul's. And "Rand" Paul.

    I don't get too deep into the philosophical aspect of Ayn Rand's theories. Just the political part. Besides that you're free to practice any religion you want in Ayn Rand's world.

    Ron Paul = selflessness, get along with others, Golden Rule. Ayn Rand = selfishness, self worship, everyone else can go to hell. I don't think the government should interfere with anyone's right to be a jerk, but making your philosophy center around being a jerk sets you up for failure since people don't like jerks.

    I think Ayn Rand and Donald Trump also have a lot in common.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Ayn Rand detested Christianity, and any other social structure that taught sacrificing oneself for another was virtuous. She believed that all evils of the world were the result of altruism. You asked why so many people here hate Ayn Rand, and I answered you.
