      Easiest to specify is the book's political and ideological significance. The Fountainhead originally provided, and continues to provide, a powerful inspiration to the individualist movement in America and throughout the world. More than any other work, The Fountainhead reawakened popular enthusiasm for a way of thinking, and a way of life, that in was regarded by virtually every sector . A collection of essays written mostly by Ayn Rand, this book did a good job of getting out the over all message of Individual Rights superseding the of the most interesting bits I found were the parallels between the arguments taking place circa the mid- to late's and today; we seem to still be facing all of the arguments coming out of D.C. now that we were then/5(8).

Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal. Readers of Atlas Shrugged are struck by the moral fire of Ayn Rand’s defense of business and capitalism. She does not regard capitalism as an amoral or immoral means to some “common good“—as do most of its defenders—but as a profoundly moral social is, she wrote, “the only system geared to the life of a rational being.”.

Dangers of collectivism. Ayn Rand wrote Anthem approximately two decades after the events of the Russian Revolution, and the ills and misdoings of the Soviet government under Josef Stalin greatly influenced Rand's understanding of the value of collectivism.

The USSR had originated from the idea that Communism, an extreme version of socialism, would help the common people by collectivizing.

The message is that individuals need some higher reason (serving others) to live aside from themselves, or else their existence is unjustified. It is exactly this idea that Ayn Rand militantly rejects as false morality, and Equality himself will realize this by the end of Anthem.

Existentialism, Alienation, Sartre, and Ayn Rand For the existentialist philosophers in the 20th century, alienation was a natural theme. In their writings they have talked about how the social pressures, mass culture, and modern technologies can alienate an individual from his surroundings.
