Atlas Shrugged: The Movie Interview

Atlas Shrugged is a novel by Ayn Rand, first published in 1957 in the United States. Rand's fourth and last novel, it was also her longest, and the one she considered to be her magnum opus in the realm of fiction writing. The book explores a dystopian United States where leading innovators, ranging from industrialists to artists, refuse to be exploited by society.The theme of Atlas Shrugged, as Rand described it, is "the role of man's mind in existence."

  1. Ann Rand's philosophy of hyper-individualism is one sided. No where is it understood that there is any DUTY to one's ancestors who came before. The middle-ground is the wiser course. Sure one is an individual, but as a RATIONAL individual one must recognize that many have come before and sacrificed for the good of their kinship group who made modern industrial society possible. Where would Hank Reardon be if there never was any public-spiritedness to make pubilc infrastructure possible, which he uses so much to achieve his totally selfish goals. Be a rugged individual but understand that it is not all about you, life is short and the wheel of RATIONAL society will only continue to turn with a honorable consideration of both individual thoughts and desires and a group cohesion and strategy in which those thoughts and desires are protected. Be both individual and collective simultaneously. Ann Rand was an ideological fool and no society has prospered under her myopic views historically. This kind of thinking is a jew-strategy to divide and conquor from the "Right"- Ex-Objectivist
