Atlas Shrugged is full of stereotypes and over-simplifications. Rand continually displays her extreme bias towards capitalism, and distain for any sort of regulation. It makes sense to me that a person with her particular background would hold the opinions discussed in Atlas Shrugged, but I really don't see how any rational westerner can take this book seriously. Any comparisons to modern life are superficial at best, and completely unavoidable. Rand's ideas are so over-generalized that you can find comparisons everywhere you look but never manage to find any deeper meaning. I really wanted this book to mean something, but it's shallow.
