Gaining Traction

Dr. John Lewis on the OActivist list points to this great endorsement of ARI:
Dodge: Is there any required reading for budding right-of-center types to advise them on how to deal with socialists?

Irving: On reading, I would recommend Madsen Pirie’s book on debating techniques. Young people are attracted by ideology, and I still find Rand to be a good start — novels then non-fiction.

The Ayn Rand Institute has changed direction under Yaron Brook who impressed me greatly when I met him. ARI has moved into outreach and invested heavily in new websites. The commentary — videos, op-eds, press releases — is the best around. It is the main advocate of capitalism around. Cato and Reason are wishy-washy by comparison.
