Imagine a world where libertarians rule, Ayn Rand’s ghost is rewriting all of literature to sync up with her Objectivist agenda, and only two great minds can take her down. Who are our brave heroes? Why they’re none other than Thomas Frank, founding editor of The Baffler and author of Pity the Billionaire, and Julie Klausner, host of the popular comedy podcast “How Was Your Week.” Together, they will face off against the late author in Ayn Rand: The Game Show, part of the Baffler 21 Release Party. This new issue of the excellent politics and culture magazine features Frank on OWS, Rick Perlstein on Mitt Romney, and criticism by Barbara Ehrenreich and others.
