    That’s the last book Trent Reznor would be interested in.
    Somehow you too superficially perceive the essence of this novel. Although everyone has different tastes and perceptions too. 1984 I read it too, great novel, very good work. But not every good piece sinks into the soul. Everything is individual.

    atlas shrugged is like the libertarian handbook. the ideas it presents about "individualism" are really just about selfishness.

    See also; "The Virtue of Selfishness" ... because why be subtle about it.

    Gotta love "individualism" authors who also not only take charity from fans but government cheques as well (Snopes). But hey, we have a literary thread already...
