caroljane Posted January 30, 2011 Author Share Posted January 30, 2011 > Besides, there's nothing wrong with Eddie Willers morally and in terms of living a happy and fulfilling life.Not in this world, no. Plenty of Eddies do live moral, happy and fulfilled lives. But there was no place for him in Galt's Gulch, and Ayn Rand knew it. Her great philosophical and creative imagination was directed against the world she did not want to live in, filled with people she did not want to live with. She created the fictional heroes she needed, and sketched the things that would not happen in an ideal world. To ask her to build and populate that world with bricks and mortar, and flesh and blood, would be too much to ask of any human being, however brilliant, however correct.
