Sorry prospect of an eerie homogenization

[Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged first appeared in 1957. The consequences of punishing and demonizing the life of the mind constitute the theme. After all, what would happen if, instead of the dull and the incapable, our best and brightest went on strike? Atlas Shrugged from Thoughts, Books, and Philosophy by jhbowden]

One shudders at the prospect of a possible reign of "the dull and the incapable" as the present goings on insists on an eerie homogenization by "punishing and demonizing the life of the mind." [TNM] 11:11 AM
