Hi Katie,

I enjoyed your article very much. I came upon it by accident, while googling Mark Shea, who gratuitously attacked me on a friend's Facebook page. I was rather appalled at his pompous, even vicious behavior, which you also have observed. Of course I blocked him. Who needs such abuse? Reeling from his attack, I still wanted to give you the heads up on your opinion of Ayn Rand's work:

Speaking for myself, I despise and deplore Ayn Rand's philosophy.  I endorse every line of Whittaker Chamber's justly famous take down of her libertarian radicalism. And yet, guess what?  I think there's a lot of truth in her critique of liberalism and socialism.  And her books, wretched as they are both philosophically and literarily, are engaging and influential.  They can wake a person up and motivate him to make more of himself.

That is exactly how her books affected me. Such works of literature are catalysts in one's own philosophical and spiritual evolution. I wanted to add that her position on excellence dovetails perfectly with mine.There is an essay called, "The Mundanity of Excellence," which is very interesting reading. It can be found here.

Stay informed
