I read it. That's the reason I'd never read it or any other Ayn Rand trash ever again.
pointy-eared bosses have a nasty habit of attribute the less-than-stellar elements of a project to you, even if you weren't responsible for them.
Damn those elven bosses!!
Protip: It's pointy-haired boss.
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.
Will they be passing around the drugs you take on the island as well?
Sony Pictures is a US corporation.
Are you new to planet earth and the way the movie companies work?
The threat that stopped the movie from being released was the claim of blowing up theaters. Why would the theater chains who backed out care about Sony's data being leaked?
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.
Sony was going to release it up until all the major theater chains said they wouldn't show it. It's sort of hard to release a movie into theaters when none of them will show it.
Have pigs sprouted wings and started flying in your universe?
And posting to pastebin is now "coding" apparently.
