    Will it by chance be called "Atlas Shrugged II: Electric Boogaloo"? If so then I can't wait for "Atlas Shrugged III: Shrug Harder"

    Followed by Atlas Shrugged IX: The Shruggening and Atlas Shrugged X: Jason Takes Manhattan. Not to mention that reboot Atlas Shrugged: Rand Vs Marx.

    Uwe Boll does it all the time.


    I'm trying to figure out if they're actually trying to make money.

    It's strange that they didn't notice. Or perhaps they didn't care.

    I am ashamed to say I actually did pay to see this movie, but I had to, for morbid curiosity. I think I was the only one watching (there weren't a lot of us) who wasn't a randroid. When we were all walking out and talking about the movie, I just said something like "Yeah, I'm going to go give some money to a homeless guy."

    Also, I remember that A Serbian Film was playing in the next auditorium. I probably should have watched that.

    You probably should have. Funny thing about a movie about a book intended to promote people into making money doesn't make any money.

    I very much doubt it's anything more than a propaganda campaign for the "producers of society." Notice how the Two Jews, Marx and Rand, are obsessed with the "producers of society." Fuck the producers. Consumers will make a society flourish. Without consumers these asshole producers have no direction and no motivation. They're nothing but a bunch of assholes who're only concerned with leeching as much as they can from society before they die. Rich or poor. Doesn't matter what ethnicity, nationality or religion they are.

    Well no shit Snorlax, weren't you aware that Ayn Rand was a mistress for a Rothschild? She has ulterior motives for her "ideology."

    I mean Jesus Christ people, the fact I seem to be the only one who read Atlas Shrugged as was like "This book is about a conspiracy to destroy the world" and I've mentioned this to a few people who are Randiods and they were rather indifferent to this or said something like "oh yeah, I didn't think that was the main point of the book." What?! It is the fucking plot and you are telling me that it isn't that important?

    Also, they don't know how to market this shit. Michael Moore and others like him made a fortune preaching bullshit and watching the legions of idiots swallow it up without noticing how they're contributing to the things they're meant to be hating.

    You mean apart from being a Jew? Then again, I hear that Marx was part of a famous German fraternity in his youth...

    But yeah, I knew. Bitches all connected and shit.

    But if I'm mom, who is phone?

    Er, no. Rand might give you the impression that the economy works only because super-individuals are having super-control of it. And her blatant hero worship is frankly disturbing. Business, research, art and other creative activities has a lot of tedium. Inspiration is good, but it won't actually deliver anything.

    And if the #1 in a business went on a strike, the void would be filled instantly. Think of kids on a playground. If the kid with the extra cool jump ropes has to go home for dinner, taking the ropes with her, the dynamic of the playground has changed. But the play adapts to the new dynamic as if she and her ropes never was there. Like a ballroom dance.

    And focusing on production instead of consumption is simply easier and better for your peace of mind. Even if you're sorting mail at some post office, you're producing order. Because it's only if you're in the Garden of Eden that you don't have to produce anything. And given the human capacity for boredom and laziness, you'd probably find out something to do to kill time. Maybe making pine cone animals. And lo and behold, you produced something.

    P.S. Why this fixation on jews?

    Because you seem to consider consumption to be primary. Me and Marx consider production to be the prerequisite for consumption.

    If the people want wheat and you and Marx start growing tobacco, what do you think they'll want after you harvest said tobacco? But really, there's little point in discussing Marx. The fool dismissed supply and demand. The most basic and primary rule of economics.

    Smooth moves.
    Really? He (or his BFF Engels) pointed out that there's something in the economy that provides what we need. It's never like we're lacking shirts but are drowning in shirt buttons. :cool:
