    @roadrunner - Completely agree, I embrace altruism, but should I be forced to be altruistic by my government? I am a registered democrat, an environmental scientist, a mom and donate money to causes I more »

    love how people keep bringing up that Rand took social security and for that reason, her philosophy and ideals must be junk. Was she forced to pay into SS (and medicare)? Should she have paid into it more »

    I "aged into" it. I read it in college, admired the characters, the cinematic features of the story, the love triangles, the mystery, the alternative energy technology. I enjoy science fiction and rea more »

    I am not in the film industry so maybe I didn't catch some editing issues since I thought the move was great. Ayn wrote Shrugged in such a cinematic way, it was great to see the sweeping landscapes, w more »

    Per press release, Boston is one of 11 markets that they're going to release the movie on April 15th! Exciting. There's been nearly 200 people who have "demanded" it through Eventful.com/demand. The R more »

    Can't wait for the Atlas Shrugged: Part 1 movie to come out on April 15th! While I agree the book represents an ideal with no room for gray, the book envelopes some completely and currently relevant i more »
