I don't know, the best way to make a child hate something is to force them to do it.

I liked the book, but I'd hate having to read it as an assignment.

I've read it four times, and never made it more than a couple of pages into "This is John Galt". Good lord, we get it already!

I had a Fire Chief that would always give orders three times in three different ways, just to make sure he was understood.

I guess Ms. Rand wanted to be very sure people got the right message.
