I started and finished reading Ayn Rand's Anthem the other night and it was very good. I understand the philosophy behind it and the warning to the future. It's interesting how some of the characters' "names" are the liberal buzzwords of the day today, like "equality," "solidarity," "unity," or whatever. Sometimes it's disturbing how these writers can so accurately see a trend in society continuing into the future. If Ayn Rand was still alive, she'd be disappointed at the turn the world has taken since she died. But it always was going down that path... entropy and then eventual destruction.
