It's September 2nd. Start a Conversation.

"A white rectangle hung over the city, imparting the date to the men in the streets below. In the rusty light of this evening’s sunset, the rectangle said: September 2." - Atlas Shrugged
Depicting a world spinning out of control, plagued by soaring government spending, crippling regulations and ever-increasing assaults on individual liberty, Ayn Rand wrote Atlas Shrugged more than 50 years ago as a warning.

One look at the news today and you come to realize that Atlas Shrugged is NOW NON-FICTION.
