Nú er vist verið að íhuga að gera kvikmynd eftir Atlas Shrugged, bók hennar Ayn Rand um hversu frábært það sé að vera kaldlyndur öfgafrjálshyggjuelítista-einstaklingshyggjumannhatari. Þetta er umfjöllun sem lýsir mínu eigin áliti á Rand og hennar fylgismönnum afskaplega vel. Besta málsgreinin:
Weep no more, bruised and battered libertarians: After 37 years of being shot down by rational people who see the book as a stilted and masturbatory work suitable only for college freshmen who havent figured out that, if everyone did exactly what they wanted all the time, civilization would collapse on itselfand by the way, dudes, most ladies dont enjoy being raped into submission, even by rugged industrialistsyour sticky dreams of turning Rands rambling screed about the values of selfishness and laissez-fare capitalism into a brutally dull, unwatchable movie are about to become a reality!
Eftirfarandi athugasemd er líka nokkuð skemmtileg:
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs. -- Christopher Pynes
