Otequay of the Ayday
While looking for publication numbers for Rand's 'Atlas Shrugged' I found the data on this review page. It included this sarcastic quip by the New Yorker magazine in their review of the book upon its release:
The review in the New Yorker called the theme unbelievable and pointless. "After all," wrote the reviewer, [in October, 1957] "to warn contemporary America against abandoning its factories, neglecting technological progress and abolishing the profit motive seems a little like admonishing water against running uphill."
Nah, those things could never happen in contemporary America.'Atlas Shrugged' QOTD Quote of the Day Posted by JohnGalt at February 12, 2011 12:51 PM
