Dear Mr. Gee:
Thank you for your letter. I am glad that you liked THE FOUNTAINHEAD and that you found it extremely logical.
No, it is not an “over simplification”. Be very careful of that word. It is the one used at present by all collectivists whose purpose is to make you think that all truth must be complicated beyond any human understanding and that, therefore, you should do nothing but take their orders.
I am enclosing a printed letter which I think might interest you.
