"A white rectangle hung over the city, imparting the date to the men in the streets below. In the rusty light of this evening’s sunset, the rectangle said: September 2." - Atlas Shrugged

Did you know?

    There is absolutely no "fiction" in the events as portrayed in Atlas Shrugged. Today is too eerily similar to the story that Ayn Rand wrote more than 50 years ago.

    Sad but true. And only we can make a difference.

    All you have to do is read the morning news. Sure doesn't sound like "Atlas Shrugged" is particularly fictional, to me.

    Happy September 2nd.

    BTW: I like Taylor Schilling as Dagny. Just saying.

      I did, too. However, for continuity's sake, may not be able to go back to her. Of course, that didn't seem to bother them from AS1 to AS2. Contractual commitments, personal reasons, whatever.

    Tell me I'm splitting hairs, but since the characters and some of the places in the book have not existed nor do they, it is not non-fiction. However, the more modern term of "faction" suits it very well.

    What is both written, as well as what's shone in the films ( Even though Pt. 2, should be completely RE-SHOT with the "FIRST" cast ) its only CLOSE, to what's actually WAITING . . . the system is "VERY" close to coming apart. People ( including MYSELF ) are simply WAITING for it to happen . . . then, God help us "ALL". Its going to get REAL ugly, REAL fast. On a level that people won't even BELIEVE. ( Especially when all their "TOYS" stop working . . . ) It will be what the BOOK . . . "DOESN'T" speak about, only HINTS at.
