Equality 7-2521

“I stand here on the summit of the mountain. I lift my head and I spread my arms. This, my body and spirit, this is the end of the quest. I wished to know the meaning of things. I am the meaning. I wished to find a warrant for being. I need no warrant for being, and no word of sanction upon my being. I am the warrant and the sanction.”
Anthem by Ayn Rand

Last night, I asked a friend for some book recommendations. When he mentioned a book by Ayn Rand, my first thought was “no way am I reading some thousand-plus page book full of radical ideology,” but I binge-read all of Anthem today and it was a surprisingly manageable and engaging 120 pages of dystopian fiction. I’d recommend it if you like dystopian fiction and willing to admit that you’ve read and enjoyed Ayn Rand.

A friend once told me that all I eat is chocolate and cheese. I was both disturbed and amused to realize that he was right.
