Even after all major countries of Europe got socialist governments in 1998,
it is not too late to think about the implied consequences
for the society and their effects to the quality of life and morality.
Reading about politics is tiresome, except when written by the Russian
Radical: Ayn Rand grew up in Russia, emmigrated to America in 1926
and started this book, her debut, in 1930, when she was only twenty-five.
This fascinating fiction portrays Kira, Leo, and Andrei,
who demand the right to live their own lives and pursue their own happiness.
It tells of Kira's passionate love, held like a fortress
against the corrupting evil of a totalitarian state.
While not a story of politics,
the theme of this classic novel is the struggle of the individual
against the state, showing what the theory of socialism means in practice.
