How would an Objectivist go about constructing a constitution?

The Atlas Shrugged Movie

I never expected good reviews. It isn’t reasonable to expect all the terrible departments and groups and lobbies and media that make there living off this failing condition in our world to stand up and defend the Atlas Shrugged movie, is it?┬áThese people will latch on to anything trying to defend Altruism. It always amazes me that no Altruist ever even tries to make an argument on technical points. I know they can’t, they would sound like buffoons. However, they should try to defend their philosophy. The Atlas Shrugged Movie was showed at 299 theaters and it made 5 million dollars. What if it have been showed at them all? The movie industry is it’s own worst enemy. All those people are wheelchair cripples from repeatedly shooting themselves in the feet. The 54 year struggle to make this movie is not surprising. The way it is all intermixed with what is happening in our world right now is approbate.

  1. When an important movie like AS-1 comes around, we should require the owners of movie theatres to show the movie regardless of the owners’ personal politics or the concern for profits – instead of letting the free market system be the sole guide as to what is shown and where.

    I wonder why Rupert Murdoch (20th Century Fox) didn’t use his considerable Hollywood clout and his theatres to produce, distribute, promote and/or show AS-1. A few ads on American Idol could have generated a lot of buzz. Is it possible the liberal Hollywood mentality could have gotten to him also?

    Thank you for the comment. I fear that political pressure applied to people like Rupert Murdoch are/is the reason some movies get excellent advertising and are shown everywhere, and some movies are sidelined for reasons other than poor quality.
