Atlas Shrugged Redux
Atlas Shrugged is one of my all time favorite novels. If you look closely you can usually see a worn and well read copy of it behind me. The premise of Atlas Shrugged is that we do not need to live for the State or for other people.
I saw the movie this weekend and it was pretty good for a low budget movie. But unless you read the novel, I doubt you could appreciate the film.
I was planning to do a traditional movie review (zzzzzzz) but I decided to have some fun and play with the theme in modern terms.
As the government pursues collectivist policies (such as racial preferences, etc.) the men of ability disappear and we regress as a nation.
