[Janice Rogers] Brown, meanwhile, is reportedly a fan of writer Ayn Rand, who sharply advocated for individual rights. At a Federalist Society gathering, Brown warned about government overreach: “If we can invoke no ultimate limits on the power of government, a democracy is inevitably transformed into a kleptocracy - a license to steal, a warrant for oppression.”

Rep. Ryan (R-WI) is worried that his flimsy Randian economic theories will be blown out of the water as soon as they questioned by Stewart. Sen. Cruz won’t go near Stewart’s show because he is likely…

BioShock   Neutral  

BioShock takes you to the magical city of Rapture, an underwater city that has more than its fair share of secrets. Rapture is the brainchild of Randian magnate Andrew Ryan, you’re Jack and you just want out of this watery mausoleum.

Night of January 16 is the only play written by the acclaimed author and philosopher, Rand. It was written a decade before her best selling novel, the Fountainhead, and almost 25 years before her best known work, Atlas Shrugged. On one level, Night of January 16 is the destruction of a brilliant and ruthless man. On a deeper level, it is a dramatic objectification of Ayn Rand’s vision of human strength.

For some reason, I had a preconceived notion that Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged would have a more prominent placement on Hockey and Murdoch’s bookshelves than Thomas Piketty’s “Capital”.

Some semblance of order was returned to the universe when I later read that Hockey and Murdoch were arguing that lower taxes and smaller government are the best ways to address inequality. Ayn Rand could still be proud of these highly talented and successful individuals, despite their heartfelt and possibly religious-motivated concern for the poor.

It’s easy to see women such as Margaret Thatcher and Ayn Rand as role models for women, yet they both championed individuals rather than the collective — a feminist ideal. To reject the feminist label is not throwing in the towel to break down the barriers that women face in the workplace here or challenge the world’s harsh regimes that oppress women and girls.

The music of the Beatles, the writings of Maya Angelou and “The Great Gatsby” almost are exclusively the domain of Democrats; country crooner George Strait, the political musings of Ben Carson and “Atlas Shrugged” are fancied by Republicans.

Conrad has watched enough US movies to fill more than a lifetime. Lost gems such as The Americanization of Emily (1964), and Giant, the adaptation of Edna Ferber’s novel, are eloquently reclaimed. Immigrants who made remarkable American films, such as the Viennese Billy Wilder and the Parisian Louis Malle, finally get their due. One must be grateful to Conrad for having got through not just the airport blockbusters of James Michener, but also the unreadable doorstop paranoid fantasies of Ayn Rand.

Lofgren said, “If you think Paul Ryan and his Ayn Rand-worshiping colleagues aren’t after your Social Security and Medicare, I am here to disabuse you of your naivete.”

In a speech on leadership, novelist and influential libertarian Ayn Rand was not too far afield when she noted that the difference between conservatives and liberals is one of degree, not of principle. Typically cutting to the chase, Rand faulted both conservatives and liberals for pandering to voters and for holding as their chief trump card government goodies which they will dispense if elected. True to Rand’s complaint, Republicans actually are often Democrats lite.
