Once again I feel compelled to break into the primary purpose of this blog to address a problem that has become glaringly apparent as we approach this coming weekend. It has to do with media black out of the truth, including the give and take of ideas among free men.
This weekend is the debut of a new movie, Atlas Shrugged Part One.
The movie is new, but the book on which the movie is based was published in 1956. The book is one of the biggest selling books of all time, as I understand it, second only to the Bible. It has been named in a good number of public opinion polls as the second most influential book of all time for those who have taken the time to read it.
The media silence should be a great cause for concern, and very telling as to the anti-human liberty agenda that presently dominates or public dialogue. The media refusal to mention the debut of this movie is the silent equivalent of the big lie that took Germany captive during the rise of Hitler. This is not an accident. It is not a matter of no importance, and it is not pretty.
I urge the readers to go see this movie!

As for the short comings of the philosophy and person of Ayn Rand, I am well aware of them from back in the days when I was in correspondence with her about her problems, both philosophical, and relational. I am more than willing to address those problems, should that become necessary, but the point for the present is that what she has written should have both a reading and a viewing, because it goes to the root cause of the last days of America!
