Emery identifies most closely as a right-wing libertarian, not a social democrat.

…when political differences are reduced to good and evil, life and death, the stakes are all that much higher. I can almost appreciate their desire to make me see the light, their hope that one more reading of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged or Frederich Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom might get me there. It won’t. FL Transplant: I have some relatives that retired and…

In 1987, my father was newly 30, and in the ripe of his moderate obsession with philosopher and writer Ayn Rand. I was baby number three, and in the dead of winter, just six days before Christmas in a town outside Toronto, my father would insist on a little spelling homage in my name. Jillanna, how it is to be said, would be come Jillayna.

That “y,” that little piece of ethical altruism splashed into my name would prove to set the stage for my future. What’s in a name? It turns out, a hell of a lot.

The trilogy no one really asked for, is coming to an end after no really saw it. Try as they might to tap into the general air of discontent regarding the economy and politics, the producers behind the “Atlas Shrugged” series couldn’t seem to rouse much interest behind their very niche base. The first movie earned a tepid $4.6 million at the box office, and the second took in even less, with $3.3 million. And in a move that Ayn Rand herself would likely have frowned upon, a Kickstarter campaign was enabled for the finale, “Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt?” and the trailer is here to show where that money went. And, it didn’t end up going to much.
