It's simple. You post comments having nothing to do with a movie review but only with the reviewer. You bring a flame war from another site - objectivistliving - over here.

A perfect movie although not why you might think.
The financial crash of 2008, predicted by DeLillo in Cosmopolis and by Rand in Atlas Shrugged, albeit both clairvoyants saw it differently.

Remembering the Real Ayn Rand
By DONALD L. LUSKIN
Tomorrow's release of the movie version of "Atlas Shrugged" is focusing attention on Ayn Rand's 1957 opus and the free-market ideas it espouses.

In an effort to spend more time focusing on what I enjoy, and less time writing about it, I'm no longer blogging or Tweeting. I now have a static website up at www.fluidscape.com, which I'll be updating on a highly infrequent basis (basically whenever I complete a project, or release new software).
It's been a long while since I participated here - mostly due to my developing a profound cynicism w.r.t. all things political, & deciding to spend my time in other areas, mostly offline - but I see most of the old regulars are still here & active (& that the AGW thread is still on the front page ... damn that's long-lived).
Have fun guys & gals ...

As the government’s Select Committee inquiry kicks off with all manner of fabricated non-science presented to it, The Free Radical is thrilled to be publishing an Open Letter letter from one of the world’s leading climate ‘skeptics’ to the world’s newest Prime Minister on the very subjects the Select Committee says it is considering.

Hi to you all, and welcome to a ‘Summer Reader’ of the Free Radical. This is the Crisis Edition, and it’s packed with great reading on the economic crisis; who caused it and how, and what politicians and their servants are doing now that will only make it all worse.
George Reisman, David McGregor, Gene Callahan, Stephen Hicks, Sean Gabb and Jeff Perren make sense out of nonsense, and order out of economic chaos.
On it’s own that’s the price of your copy back right there. But that’s not all!

These were terrorists who make no serious concrete demands. They’re not after riches. They don’t genuinely want prisoners released or captured revolutionary leaders handed over. They don’t want to be flown to Cuba.
All they truly want is blood.

Fresh from his "people I hate" diatribe in last week's Sunday Star, in which "Creators of wealth" and "makers of jobs" come in for particular opprobrium, Christopher Trotter now offers up as an antidote to his hate speech a "things I believe in" column.

These days, you can get a graduate diploma in political science at Victoria University of Wellington by analysing "John Banks and Lindsay Perigo, in their host roles on the Radio Pacific breakfast talk show 'The First Edition,'" in particular their "political-symbolic hate campaign" against Helen Clark which was "crystallised," says research student Lewis Stoddart, "into a characterisation which I describe as ‘communist lesbian dictator’."

Julian Darby has uploaded the four-handed religion debate from Lindsay Perigo's show on Radio Live this morning, which I'm told was brilliant radio. I myself have to take his word for that at this stage since I was sleeping at the time, but you can click here to hear the debate in its full MP3 brilliance.

Seeing as it's Sorry Week in Australia, here's an apology I'd like to see some honest NZ education department apparatchik deliver.
Today I'd like to honour the New Zealand children who were delivered by government force into our care, and whom we rewarded by abusing their parents' trust and depriving them of the human potential with which they were born.
We reflect on your past mistreatment, and we have to say: we were responsible.

Expect another day tomorrow of protest, anger and hot air, all now par for the course for the day on which New Zealand was founded. You'd think, in a country with as much to offer and as much to celebrate as New Zealand has that our National Day itself would be something to celebrate. Not likely.
