“ We are continuing to study Ayn Rand and Objectivism, having started some discussion of John Galt's speech in Atlas Shrugged. We have decided to read the book from the beginning through Part I which is @300 pages. Having done that, our next meeting will then put us all on the same page, so to speak, for a more organized discussion of the book, and when we get to John Galt's speech which is virtually the end of the book, we will be better prepared to discuss the speech both in the context of the book's story-line and out of the context of the book as a philosophy on its own. My observation is that we remain absorbed by Ayn Rand, and our discussions are only getting better as time goes on. ”
