Three original ideas in Atlas Shrugged

We have been reading Ayn Rand’s magnum opus “Atlas Shrugged.” Among many other things, her monumental novel expresses three original ideas:

  1. Robin Hood was a scoundrel, not a hero.
  2. Trademarks and corporate logos (see below) are the modern equivalent of coats of arms.
  3. Who you make love to is an expression of what your values are.

We will elaborate on these three ideas in future blog posts.
