In 1991, the Library of Congress and the Book of the Month Club ran a
survey of the books that most impact people's life. Second behind the
Bible was Ayn Rand's _Atlas Shrugged_. Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan was
associated with Rand in the 60's (he's since changed his philosophy).
House Approriations Chairman Robert Livingston listed _Atlas Shrugged_
as the book that most influenced his politics beliefs.

Agreed. This IS essentially a marxist list. I will continue my
subscription so that I can hear some controversial opinions, but I
doubt I'll engage in much posting. A person on the post in forwarding
posted e-mails from this list about her. I think I'll save everyone
I am still interested, however, in finding a Marxist publication that
is free. Doug Henwood said that he receives Imprimis (a "conservative"
publication). If anyone else wishes to receive Imprimis FREE you can
write via snail mail at: Imprimis, Hillsdale College, 33 E. College
St., Hillsdale MI 49242.
You can also subscribe via the world wide web at the following URL:
