Ayn Rand Has Left the Building
Paul Ryan, 2003: “I give out ‘Atlas Shrugged’ as Christmas presents, and I make all my interns read it.”
Paul Ryan, 2005: “The reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand.”
Paul Ryan, 2012: “I reject her philosophy. It’s an atheist philosophy. It reduces human interactions down to mere contracts and it is antithetical to my worldview. If somebody is going to try to paste a person’s view on epistemology to me, then give me Thomas Aquinas.”
What happened? The bishops got to him.
