welcome to the world of Atlas Shrugged. Ayn Rand's libertarian dystopian view of the world where government interference and too much regulation stifles corporate innovation and progress.
Both of these movies are now available on Netflix.
But I am critical. Honestly? All I see is right-wing propaganda
justifying greed and no safety oversight to protect the public from
corporations releasing potentially dangerous products to society. This
isn't even about liberal or conservative but the question I have to ask :
if Ayn Rand's ideas were so great, why after being tested over and over
again and again in the last 30+ years, why do those ideas still not
If "selfishness is a virtue", why then is contempt for those
less fortunate somehow "worshipped" and exploited through those that
follow the writings of this woman?
I never read the actual novel,
but If these films are indeed a screen "word for word" adaptation of the
1957 title, then what it tells me is that the story itself is terrible
writing. Part II doesn't even have the same original cast as the first.
This book is the bible for sociopaths.
