Risk taking Researcher Juho

Ayn Rand was a Russian-American novelist, philosopher, playwright, and screenwriter. She is known for her two best-selling novels, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged, and for developing a philosophical system she called ObjectivismIn 1985, Rand's heir Leonard Peikoff established the Ayn Rand Institute, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting Rand's ideas and works. In 1990, philosopher David Kelley founded the Institute for Objectivist Studies, now known as The Atlas Society. In 2001 historian John McCaskey organized the Anthem Foundation for Objectivist Scholarship, which provides grants for scholarly work on Objectivism in academia. The charitable foundation of BB&T Corporation has also given grants for teaching Rand's ideas or works.
The book Anthem was written in 1937 and first published in 1938 in England. She didn't have the idea of writing Anthem until she read a little bit of The Saturday Evening Post. The summary until now is that Equality 7-2521, writing by candlelight in a tunnel under the earth, tells the story of his life up to that point. Later, he realized that he was born with a "curse", that makes him learn quickly and ask many questions. He excelled at the Science of Things and dreamed of becoming a Scholar. However, a Council of Vocations assigns all people to their Life Mandate, and he was assigned to be a Street Sweeper. He accepts the assignment as a penance for his "Transgression of Preference" in secretly desiring to be a Scholar. He later finds out about electricity and presents it to the World Council of Scholars. He thought the World Council of Scholars would like it yet, they wanted to destroy it but he flees to the Uncharted Forest. The next day Golden One comes and they live together in the cave.
