The producers of Atlas Shrugged are travelling far and wide to get the word out about the second part of Ayn Rand’s novel opening in theaters on October 12th. It has been a whirlwind for Harmon Kaslow and John Aglialoro. They’re speaking everywhere: politcal forums, business luncheons, Hollywood Galas, and… Christian audiences. (see Christian Post: Atlas Shrugged)
“What? That’s strange.” I have heard that response from more than a few people, but I don’t think so. Here’s why:
As Paul Ryan said (I’m paraphrasing), “Don’t make the mistake of thinking that reading Ayn Rand and appreciating her solid stance on Capitalism means that I am an Atheist Objectivist!” His background is Catholic and he places a lot more emphasis on those beliefs that he does for other Randian ideas. That said, there may be a lot of other ideas that both Rand and Ryan embrace. Limited government (which Rand believes goes hand-in-hand with true (laissez faire) Capitalism. Money. I dare say that Ryan would stand up and cheer as I did when Francisco D’Anconia talked about the virtue of sustaining one’s own life through creating value. Oh, well. Who is John Galt?
