Ayn Rand defended academic freedom | READER COMMENTARY

Ayn Rand, 1905-1982.

Whittaker Chambers misrepresented Ayn Rand and her ideas in the 1950s (”Carroll County school board needs to read some history,” Dec. 16). Wouldn’t bother to read anything he or National Review put out.

Ayn Rand was the foremost defender of freedom, individual rights and laissez-faire capitalism in the 20th century. Maybe out of the millions who have read and loved her philosophy some will carry on in the 21st and beyond. She has academic defenders already.
