THE FOUNTAINHEAD, by Ayn Rand

(Pages 664-695 of 695)

I finished! My takeaway, some of which was intended by the author, and some of which was not necessarily intended by the author, is that it is important that we allow people to be independent thinkers, that we encourage and reward skill and excellence, that we do not base our identity and our lives on what other people think, AND ALSO that it is good to have mercy and compassion on the poor, that generosity is a beautiful thing but not something to be forced, and that we are to love our neighbor as ourselves.
