John Stossel on Ayn Rand

I’ve never thought John Stossel to be a deep thinker, but this interview bit is just pathetic:

Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged is an endless book with some too-long speeches about how the creeping regulation destroys opportunity in America. A group of the most creative people decide they will move to a remote part of the country and start over. Without their contribution, much of modern life, which is taken for granted by the smug regulators, falls apart.


I don’t care so much that he dislikes the book, although that is rather disappointing. It’s the intensely superficial summary that really annoys me.
