Hi Curtis. While I agree with you on the paltry merits of Atlas Shrugged, I disagree that it has no influence among the powerful and that its audience is limited to people with no power. Beyond Paul Ryan and Alan Greenspan, Bob Barr, Rand Paul, and Clarence Thomas are among the most prominent Rand acolytes in government today, and her list of celebrity admirers and relatively unknown but influential bureaucrats is long. Even Donald Trump has praised her, though I doubt he has the intellectual stamina to read anything more demanding than a cereal box.
