If Bart had left evangelical Christianity for Randian objectivism, I might break out the sackcloth and ashes, but he describes himself as a humanist. I like humanists. (I suspect God is rather fond of them too.)

The first film to face Travers’ scorn is the third installment of sci-fi/drama trilogy Atlas Shrugged, the film adaptation of Ayn Rand’s 1957 literary opus. Travers “(lets) this one off easy” at Number 10 since at least “there’s no more of this crap” in the pipeline.

It is an insult to all Canadians that our government robs us the freedom to make our own economic decisions — whether buying groceries or television shows. It is an insult to all Canadians that our government violates the freedom of businesses to make their own economic decisions — whether selling groceries or television shows. To quote the immortal John Galt of Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged when asked by government bureaucrats what they could do to help, he said, “Just get the hell out of the way.”
