Imagine If “Atlas Shrugged” Was Required Reading in High School

Whenever anyone accuses some person of being ‘unfeeling,’ he means that that person is just. He means that that person has no causeless emotions and will not grant him a feeling which he does not deserve. He means that ‘to feel’ is to go against reason, against moral values, against reality.

Atlas Shrugged used to be required reading in our high schools. The economic lessons taught in this novel will change the lives of sentient beings. The division between producers and looters is apparent today. The consequences between acting with “feelings” versus “intelligent thought” are also evident.

We are facing a multitude of issues designed to destroy our country, morality and children’s future. Debate is not a valid method to solving issues according to the looters. But then it never was about intelligent debate when the power to control the individual is concerned. While we continue to wait for a failed legal system to bring traitors and criminals to justice, at some point we have to face the reality of the evil aligned against us. When that point is reached, I pray for wisdom based on the fear of God.

    I doubt very much if this will happen anytime soon. If it were required reading we might actually experience more rational thought and less emotional response. We would not have to lockup our soap pods and pointy objects either.

    I have a difficult time understanding young folks today. I have always had an inquiring mind that sought out answers to begging questions. I was challenged in school to learn. I was pushed and prodded by my elders. I was made to listen in church so that I would have a sense of moral right and wrong. My parents were required to be my parents and not my friend but they instilled in me a sense of love and respect. Law enforcement used common sense and not swat teams. Attorneys stayed on their side of the aisle in politics rather than dominate all three. What I see today in a large share of our youth is the failure of a teaching system, i.e. a form of governance, that has made them almost sub human. The human race is headed down a dark path in my opinion due to the fact they have abandon our founding principles. The problem is, there is no where to run to anymore. I feel we are faced with standing our ground again. This shall yield some unsavory and unintended consequences I feel.
