The Apes of Wrath
Otto: Apes don’t read philosophy.
Wanda: Yes they do, Otto, they just don’t understand it.
Unable to sway the minds of lesser (and shorter mortals) with her awesome statistic/hypothetical three-card monte, McMegan takes a double-dog dare from Tony Woodlief (who has much in common with McMegan but with a side order of Jesus) and lists the three books that she would use to make you see the light:
Tony Woodlief asks what three books you would recommend if you wanted to change the mind of someone who disagreed with you? Off the top of my head, I nominate Parliament of Whores, The Elusive Quest for Growth, and Government’s End. Readers, liberal, libertarian, and conservative, are invited to submit their thoughts.
Bet you can’t guess the first “thought” submitted by one of her fanboys. Go on. Guess.
Forgive me for stating the obvious, but atlas shrugged?
How did things go over at Tony’s place? First suggestion:
Ayn Rand ‘Atlas Shrugged’. Life Changing.
I’d suggest giving all of them copies of The Lord of the Flies, but I’m afraid they would choose the wrong role models.
