Two articles published in the last two days, in major university papers, discuss Ayn Rand’s ideas.
The first, printed in the Columbia Spectator, is written by a student who read Atlas Shrugged this past summer and found it “the most arduous, yet rewarding” experience of his academic life. He urges his professors to include Ayn Rand’s works in the core curriculum at Columbia and give Rand “her chance to compete in the intellectual marketplace of ideas.”
The second, printed in the Michigan Daily, argues that “morality doesn’t need religion,” and invites students to attend an upcoming lecture on the subject.
I can’t help but note that The Undercurrent has been distributed on both campuses!
