Atlas Shrugged Read in Schools?
State Senator John Goedde of Idaho has recently introduced legislation that would have all high school students read the iconic libertarian book Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. The book, name dropped by the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Paul Ryan, would not only be read by high schoolers in the Gem State, but they would also be tested on the material. What does this mean? I don't know, I'm not even sure it will pass, but I do know this: if this bill passes there will be a lot more libertarians in Idaho. Kids usually aren't exposed to this kind of material, and in my opinion, this would open their eyes. Again, I don't have a crystal ball, but my guess is that the powers controlling this country and their liberal ideology will come into Idaho and save it's citizens from the maniacal evils of conservatism.
