Atlas Shrugged: The Movie

Oh god, Oh my god. No no no no no no no no no no.

You can always tell Ayn Rand nuts by the fanatical gleam that comes into their eyes when social policy is mentioned. The gleam tells you that their souls have temporarily gone on vacation while the programming has kicked in. Ayn Rand has never been more venerated than she is in our day. Her work is, in a securely wrapped package, everything the most noxious elements of Republican party economics stand for. And now they have found a way to market their philosophy to people too lazy to even read her books. Now that we're in the era of the Tea Party, I have not been this scared of a movie since at least the Passion of the Christ.
