Ayn Rand – avoid reality
Ayn Rand or Alisa Zinovyevna Rosenbaum ( January 20 1905 – March 6, 1982)
She was a Russian – American writer and philosopher, one of the most influential people of her generation and her ideas still alive today.
Rand escaped from the oppression of the Soviet Union, after her middle class family was destroyed by the Russian revolutionaries.
Getting to America Rand got surprised by how the collectivist ideas of the Soviet Union were infiltrated into American culture, press and universities.
She fought a cultural war against those ideas by writing the second most influential book ( Atlas Shrugged ) in the American life, being only behind the bible, a pretty great achievement for someone selling philosophy.
Rand also developed a philosophy called Objectivism, based on reason and focused on the maximum development of the individual.
Despite being one e most popular female writers, who used to report strong woman figures on her novels, Ayn Rand still never mentioned by feminists duo to her positions against collectivists, pro capitalism and individual freedom.
