Perhaps Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" was indeed an insightful forecast into
the future of the world, or maybe just a warning?  I think I'll read it

I liked Sharon's opinion.

Along the critical thinking issue, a litmus test I have on how to determine
whether one can think critically or not is how they coped with 10th grade
geometry.  Did they memorize the 2 column proofs, or did they create the
proofs on demand?
