Next, the book was not meant to be just a story that entertains. She felt very strongly about certain ideals since she transitioned from Communism to Capitalism, and she writes at the very edge of the continuum. You read it, you analyze it, you adopt the ideals that make sense to you and reject those that don't. Not sure why this concept is so foreign nowadays. I don't share her atheism, but I certainly share her ideals on capitalism.

That may be very well for you, but Ayn would say that if you disagree with any of her ideas, especially including atheism, then you don't understand her at all.

Some of the things you originally mentioned like wages, taxes and transportation costs won't be significantly different between LEDs and incandescents. For other things you mentioned the prices will go down as they are mass produced and further efficiencies are found. Of course this will take time and LEDs will probably never be as cheap as incandescents, but at some point in the future they'll probably be at a price where there is no sticker shock.

Hacking's just another word for nothing left to kludge.
