Quote# 91146

I understand how and why the meaning of “going Galt” has changed from it’s origins... It has devolved to something more in-line with “going on strike”. Why? because it’s simply not possible for us to just “disappear” to some unknown location where everybody there understands and lives by the principles of hard work and responsibility... leaving behind a society dependent upon those who have left.

While Ann Rand was truly before her time, she was not a Christian. She was Jewish.

Maybe she got the idea of “Going Galt” from the bible?

You know... where all of a sudden millions of Christians suddenly disappear from the face of the earth resulting in utter chaos?

Maybe she was a Christian... I don’t know... but her solution to Society’s ills sure sounds a lot like a fictitious take on the rapture to me.

No, Aynn Rand was, for all her other idiocies, an atheist.

I love how Randroids all think they're so awesome that society would just fall apart without them.

@ Filin De Blanc, did you mean without them? You're kind of right that society falls apart "with" them, though. Or it's at least a bit of an annoyance with them.

@Titania: Whoops. Fixed.

Excessive fail in reading comprehension. She was an atheist.

Well now they have finally taken it over the top. Ayn Rand and the rapture?! Come on.

Another fundie not doing their research.

Wait... Aren't fundies supposed to condemn atheists instead of admiring them? But then again you thought a Mormon was God's choice to run a Christian nation.

Fundies don't actually read Rand just kike the don't actually read the Bible. I had one call me a liar when I told her that her hero Ayn was an atheist.

Lift your toupée and pour some milk of magnesia into the hole in the top of your head.

Jezebel's Evil Sister

Ayn Rand was a nasty hypocrite who spoke out against people accepting government "handouts" but happily accepted social security and medicare — which she never earned — after she came to America.

How about a citation of where the Bible mentions the sudden disappearance of millions of Christians?

That's not anywhere in the bible. Maybe if you actually read it, you'd know.

I just looked up Ann Rand. She seems like a perfectly harmless author of children's books, so I don't see what the problem is.

Oh. You meant AYN Rand?

Then learn to spell, jackass.

This one seems more confused than usual.

Ayn Rand is a moron. You take all of go-getters from society and have them create their own society and suddenly that society has nobody that wants to work in the sewers or fight in a war. You have a whole society full of ambitious people who all want to be the alpha dog. Like it or not, you need us "lazy commoners" who are content to just work and make a decent living. You need people who are going to follow the leader. Oh, and as for all of the Randians, they may think they'd be better off in a Randian society but the law of averages says that they're FAR more likely to be stepped on by someone more talented and resourceful than they are. When we had unrestricted business we had monopolies and even those that worked very hard got overtaken by those that had better circumstances or had the advantage of beginning first. In a Randian society you could never hope to challenge a Walmart or a McDonald's.

I think that is perfect example of fundie-style doublethink. All the time they tell us we shouldn’t accept the Theory of Evolution because Charles Darwin was an atheist/homosexual/Satanist/occultist/communist/pedophile/every-other-thing-they-don’t-like-and-he-never-was.

And then they turn around and praise the “theories” of a real atheist/Russian/libertarian/Social-Darwinist/adulteress*. It’s quite ironic, isn’t it?

*I read somewhere she had an “open relationship” with her husband, but to fundies this shouldn’t matter.

Ethnicity-wise, she was a Jew. Religion-wise whe was probably an atheist.

If she was before her time, she's still before her time; it still doesn't make much sense.

12/6/2012 7:44:03 AM



She was a sociopathic narcissist who would have laughed in your face if she heard you wondering if she had gotten her ideas from the Bible. She was a monument to greed and self interest.

@ Kuno

Correct about the marriage, and part of her philosophy about that was that she was under no obligation to respect anyone else's marriage, either. So, married men, no problem.

"a fictitious take on the rapture" ?
........
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

@ Filin De Blanc, I still think it worked the original way, too;)

Exactly how does "a fictitious take on the rapture" differ from any other take on that fictional event?

12/6/2012 8:47:11 AM

farpadokly

Well, they both have this in common; both are completely fictitious fantasies that will never happen. Both are a way to make people who think they are better than everyone else pamper their own egos and feel good about themselves. Both are targeted to people who want to feel "special" and part of an elite. Both only flourish in the United States and not much elsewhere. Both tell you a lot about American society; that there are a lot of privileged, complacent people around who like to think of themselves as individualistic and special and are utterly, hopelessly wrapped up in illusions and cut off from the realities of the world.
