    due to cover claiming it's a story of self-sacrifice.

    Lol - that's actually pretty funny. They went pretty cheap on the movie itself in order to retain the movie rights. Hopefully a better remake will happen at some point but I haven't seen this one yet but it was widely panned - even by those who like Rand.

    Rand appeals to the arrested-development adolescent mind.
    Normal people outgrow it by age 15 or so.


    Well said!

    I'd love to hijack Mr Peabody's Way Back machine and cut the cunt's throat before she could publish that bullshit.

    I read it at 18 & immediately read a 1930s Soviet sci-fi novel - bad westerners were thwarted by young communist heros , saving the world.
    I found both risible.

    "I'd love to hijack Mr Peabody's Way Back machine and cut the cunt's throat before she could publish that bullshit."


    Really? Gosh, how liberal. Or should I say, how typical of a liberal to advocate lethal force against an intellectual foe. People like you and the Psychotic Gargoyle don't even pretend to be anything other than the hideous thugs that you are.


    You are indeed the intellectual heirs of the monsters who stole the Rand family business and murdered tens of millions of Russians, Ukrainians, et al.


    And yet you have the gall to pose as humanists. What utter lies and horseshit!


    You hate Rand because she had your number, bitch, and she had the nuts to say it in print.

    I don't care anything for Ann Rand, but I love Ayn Ryd. icon_wink.gif

    So ayn is evil because she said we control our destiny and are responsible for our own happiness. .??? I forgot most liberals are only about entitlements. Love her philosophy and her books. The fountainhead was great too !

    If you think that's the only thing (or even the main thing) she said, you haven't read it.
