…out something that barely qualifies as an orgasm. Ayn Rand once said, “The worst thing you can be is tired and horny.” She didn’t literally say that, but I think that was one of the themes of Atlas Shrugged.

Atlas Shrugged Part III: Who is John Galt? … Completion of the trilogy adapted from the novel written by Ayn Rand. After 12 years of suffering mysterious disappearances of society’s most-productive individuals, the nation’s economy is on the verge of collapse. … Wow. A “zero” on RT. Even the Ayn Rand fans on Amazon hated this one. Still, if you need to complete your trilogy.

To paraphrase Tolstoy, most law students are all alike; every gunner is a gunner in their own way. Peruse those readings and if you’re about to cover Lochner, line up those Fed Soc Objectivists sitting in the back for the middle row and wallow in their impassioned defense of child labor.

A follower of philosopher and novelist Ayn Rand, he was credited with launching Alan Greenspan’s career in government, and also with helping to end military conscription in the United States.

Our discussion on Ayn Rand and Objectivism has — unsurprisingly — turned to questions of reason, rationality, and empiricism. As a number of members have pointed out, Rand’s claim that her philosophy is distinguished by its reliance on rationality is both self-flattery and self-deception: all philosophies rely on unproven and unprovable assumptions, particularly those regarding morality, the good life, etc. In this sense, Objectivism is no exception.

However, Objectivism is distinguished in its affinity for rationality.

The show is about twenty-somethings who feel unfulfilled and frustrated because they expected the world to fall at their feet and it hasn’t. As her critics have pointed out, this is not a theme Dunham has personally experienced. But she understands its power. It happens to be the human condition in 21st century America, where everyone believes they deserve fame and riches, and where no one grows up anymore.

In other words, Dunham is not a left-wing Ayn Rand. Her creative objectives are grounded in the everyday, in life as we actually live it, not as we experience it through Fox News or MSNBC.

On the worst picture list, only “Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt?” was more of a box office dud, with a return of less than $850,000.

If Ron Ruggiero’s smear of philosopher Ayn Rand (“R.I. organization embraces Ayn Rand, Jan. 3) was meant only to be an example of how not to argue and how to exclusively engage in fallacious ad hominem attacks, it is a glowing success.
