Review: Atlas Shrugged: Part II

Altas Shrugged Part II

Atlas Shrugged: Part II opened in theaters today, and I was lucky enough to be in a market that had an early matinee this morning. Of course, I already had tickets, and was first in the theater… way too early. Again, no spoilers but a few thoughts. Part II, “The Strike”, is anti-climactic. If you have read the book, you ...

Breitbart IS John Galt

Guest post by suzibasterd Andrew Breitbart is a force of nature, and I use the current tense intentionally; he will never leave us. Many words have been said about his passing.

I’ve read this piece numerous times over the years, but this was the first time I had read it through someone else’s eyes – my students’.

Skip ahead 21 years: ...

Several on the right are considering a Galt-like removal from the economy to starve the ...
