Aspies Shrugged

I'm finally getting around to reading Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. (Geez, it's taken me long enough, it's only been around, what, 50 years?) I'm only about 400 pages into it, and I'm thinking this isn't a philosophy book so much as a novel about a world where Aspies are idolized. If Dagny Taggart and Hank Rearden had lived in our age, they would have had IEP's and been dragged to the child psychiatrist for meds. On the other hand, I'm starting to think that was rather Rand's point.
