Neil Parille Posted October 28, 2009 Share Posted October 28, 2009 DF,I've read the Burns book and am reading the Heller book now. Neither is persuaded by Valliant's arguments. I found one place where Heller finds something Valliant says as potentially insightful (about Frank's psychology) but that's about it.Branden's lying to Rand for years about his affair is pretty bad. I think Rand implying that he committed fraud was probably worse.In a couple of reviews of the books ARIans have admitted that the Objectivist world in the 60s was pretty bad, but imply that Rand didn't know of it. This is not something that our two authors believe.In addition, from how the forthcoming 100 Voices is used in Heller's book, I don't think even the archivists are supporting Valliant.-Neil Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
