    Now you absolutely must watch them!
    I've probably seen them all at least 10 times and I'd watch them all again, in a heart beat! They're that good!

    +The three dvd's were GREAT!

    Having said that... Please read the book. It is so much better, and does a thorough job of explaining John Galt's philosophy of selfism, and capitalism. It is standard reading in this household along with "Animal Farm" and "1984". The book gives motivation and explaination to a couple disasters and explains why Ellis Wyatt did what he did (see.... no spoilers). The book does a far better job at explaining the quote "I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine."

    It is amazing how a book from 1957 parallels the sickness of today's liberal socialist left with their crazy laws out of congress to squash what made America great. A.S. blew me away.....

    This liberal socialist sickness is epidemic and on the verge of becoming pandemic...if it isn't already. Of all the diseases they're trying to fight, this one is the deadliest of them all. And hardly anyone is doing anything to combat it. It, of all the diseases which are running rampant, will be the most responsible for the death of America...if it isn't squashed.

    what's amazing is that in 57' someone saw a clear picture of "what's up" and warned everyone else. It's also amazing that we're all still blind after so many years.....

    in the post of GR82BPREPD,

    We learn from history that we do not learn from history. Georg Wilhelm F. Hegel
    Hegel....Wow!!!

    Is this also not the man who came up with Thesis, anti Thesis, and Synthesis???? Also known as good cop/bad cop????


    And the other thing for which he is known..is "The State is god"

    Ironic when you think about it...in a view and or knowledge of history.
