Apparently what you "know" about Rand's philosophy is not what Rand thought.

It sure matches how she acted and that's all that really matters.

"I've got mine so fuck you" is the opposite of Rand's philosophy.

And yet all the Randroids espouse such a philosophy.

She thought the only type of moral relationships were win-win relationships - "I can only get mine when you get yours".

Thanks for the laugh.

SOME US theaters pulled the plug.

"Some"? The theaters that pulled the plug represent the vast majority of theaters in the country.

Heck, they could have gotten dozens of smaller distributors, looking to make a start! And small independent theaters would have jumped at the chance to show something the big corporations would not.

Except even independent theaters pulled the movie as well.

Perhaps read the novel and learn something of the philosophy before criticising it.

I'm pretty sure everyone already knows plenty about the "I've got mine so fuck you" philosophy of the Randroids. If I wanted to read juvenile fiction to bore myself some day, I'd just read a Stephanie Meyer novel. At least she eventually gets to the point.

Since you assign God-like powers to the NSA, give up now because nothing is secure.

Subverting standards and products is not having a God-like power. It's well within the means of a nation-state agency with an unlimited black budget. Their own documents even prove this.
