"When robbery is done in open daylight by sanction of the law, as it is done today, then any act of honor or restitution has to be hidden underground." - Ragnar Danneskjöld
Weigh in on the New Atlas Shrugged Movie
Ayn Rand's masterpiece Atlas Shrugged is just under 1200 pages. And, no matter how hard we try, there is simply no way to squeeze it all into a single movie verbatim.
Now that preliminary work has begun on the new Atlas Shrugged movie, there are some tough decisions to be made before things can really get underway. One of which is, what storylines from the book would be considered not critical to Ayn Rand's message as a whole?
So, you tell us, what scenes can be left out and still result in a movie that does Rand's message justice?
A Letter from Ayn Rand
In 1934, a very young Ayn Rand wrote to her soon-to-be agent, Jean Wick, regarding her new book, We The Living.
Decades from crafting her magnum opus, Atlas Shrugged, the letter reveals a stage in Rand's development seldom seen...
"I certainly would not go so far as to demand the book [We the Living] be published exactly as it is or not at all."
