 Please make it a priority to watch these movies based on Ayn Rand’s view of how America will look if politics continues on this course they are heading.

 The theme of this movie series (from the book by the same name) is about living in an America with government implementing “Fair Share” laws and the reality of what that might look like.  When government continues to gain more control over our lives, the producers become more restricted and non-producers put forth less effort to produce.  Eventually, those who produce give up and disappear, leaving the country to those who do not produce.  The following clip explains this concept well.

Who is John Galt? [Atlas Shrugged Part 2]

Published on Oct 16, 2012

In Atlas Shrugged Part 2, we see how many great achievers have disappeared. Dagny Taggart suspects that some destroyer is behind it all. But who is the destroyer? And what is his purpose? That’s a mystery. And she suspects that the iconic question, “Who is John Galt?”   is not just an expression of despair and resignation, but has some real connection with all the disappearances. David Kelley, a consultant to the Atlas Shrugged movie, provides insights into this scene as well as the attempt of Starnesville to have each person work “according to his ability” and also pay each person “according to his need.”

 What we are really talking about is what Communism looks like and shows why that form of government doesn’t work for very long.  It also shows why Free Enterprise is the greatest form of producing good and productive businesses.

 One thing is for sure, this series gives us plenty to consider as far as the direction our nation is heading.


Ayn Rand and the Prophecy of Atlas Shrugged

 Published in 1957, objectivist philosopher Ayn Rand’s seminal novel Atlas Shrugged quickly became one of the most popular and yet controversial books of all time. Set in an unspecified future time frame — which Rand referred to as “the day after tomorrow” — the novel depicts a dystopian America in chaos, hallmarked by politicos and businessmen who squelch individual achievement, corrupt governmental regulation, and dozens of other ills. Rand uses the epic-length novel to defeat the concept of altruism, and argue that self-sacrifice and murder are equivalents of one another. This documentary from Chris Mortensen explores the individual predictions of Atlas, providing systematic evidence for the notion that our contemporary, early-21st century world has become a virtual mirror of everything that Rand predicted in the late ’50s.

The Root of Money (Atlas Shrugged Part 2)

 Published on Oct 18, 2012

James Taggart is what would now be called a “crony capitalist.” His wedding guests are the elite of a politicized economy. Taggart, Francisco d’Anconia, and Hank Rearden are all members of the “1%” –but Francisco, in his “money speech” is challenging the whole idea of the “1%.” The speech is a clarion call to understand the true nature of wealth and the distinction between those who produce it and those who acquire it through political favors.
