AYN RAND MEME by Elliekin AYN RAND MEME by Elliekin
Blank meme here, by =lulie.

I think you can tell that I respect Ayn Rand very much.

STAND BY FOR BIOSHOCK JOKES, OF COURSE. Did you know that Bioshock is a direct adaptation to videogame of Atlas Shrugged? Now you do.

Except Bioshock actually shows what would really happen if you built an entire culture based on selfishness, not the bizarre fantasy land Ayn Rand believed in.

Ayn Rand on a woman U.S. president (in 1968):

"For a woman to seek or desire the presidency is, in fact so terrible
a prospect of spiritual self immolation that the woman who would seek it is psychologically unworthy of the job... (and) what would this imply of the character of the men at that time?"

Love this. Just read AR's biography and started The Fountainhead. And finished the Fountainhead (on page 37). Scary that the mad old bat continues to exert such an influence. It's not that she couldn't write, she just was unable to tell good from bad in her own work and scared the crap out of anyone who tried to edit it. Sorry, but I find her philosophy contradictory and a bit evil. Howard Roark's buildings weren't built by some strong-jawed, muscle-bound, cardboard ideal, they were built by thousands of blue-collar schlubs probably working on minimum wage. The mass of humanity whom Ms Rand has no interest in or time for. America is a big country in scale, vision and heart. Rands philsophy makes it a sour little village populated by shouty assholes.

Who Is John Galt? He's a jerk.

I read first one of Ayn Rand's non-fiction book and enjoyed it a lot. Then, I got as a gift The Fountainhead which I liked and only after much later I read Atlas Shrugged.

It makes me feel bad about people who think that short and with simple structure books = good. While, long, difficult, articulated book = bad. This talks a lot of the majority of people's lack of at least average vocabulary. Of course, you could say "I am egoist and you are altruist." However, maybe this won't pass the message or idea of the author. Remember that most of the things she wrote are either very different from mainstream or completely different. So, maybe that is why she choose to use so much space to explain the correct philosophical argumentation for "I am egoist and you are altruist." with a full non-contradictory explanation.

Now, if you really had an issue with her philosophic ideas after reading the novel then I think you may find some answers directly from the author by reading one of her non-fiction books. It was easier for me to understand the reason behind her character's speeches after I read her book "Philosophy Who Needs It?".

Great drawings! Regards,

Ha! Love it. I am just finishing the Fountainhead at the moment (having read Atlas a while back) and the second panel just makes this amazing :D

I have (mostly) enjoyed her writing though, and her ideas.

I like to think that everyone in Galt's Gulch had an inexplicable empty place in their hearts, until one day Eddie just landed there in a plane he built singlehandedly out of the abandoned train.

Actually pretty funny. XD

Can I submit this to #AynRandArt? It's a small not-very-active group, but it's possible you'll get negative comments if I do (I gather that some Objectivists/Randians have difficulty taking a joke), so I understand if you don't want that.

It's really interesting actually, Atlus Shrugged sets up Ayn Rands view of Objectivism and then years later Bioshock showed what would happen if the philosophy was used in the real world.

Embracing Ayn Rands philosophy to the letter the way it is written in 'Atlas Shrugged' would lead only to ruin just like in Bioshock. There are good ideas in 'Atlas Shrugged' but only when you tone them down.

Embracing it the way Rand embraced it would not lead to ruin. The way Andrew Ryan FANATICALLY embraced it led to ruin in Bioshock. That's the difference, common sense, or fantaticism.
