Seriously, if this is the best promotion of itself that the free market can manage, it really would benefit from the help of a Ministry of Culture or something.
Big surprise a socialist/fascist/communist didn't like the movie.

Sorry that you didn't like the movie, Mary...

Not only are those three political positions entirely distinct from each other, but you're clearly devoid of any criticism of this reviewer's review. Find another venue to inhabit instead of here because you make yourself look idiotic with posts like these. You're yet another indicator that this kind of argument is the modus operandi of the collective that is the internet-dwelling libertarian or Randtard.

Well, it may not be the best movie I've seen, but I like the theme.
It is refreshing to see something else than the leftist propaganda. For someone like me, whom spent 25 years in a communist country and seen the destruction that Marxist ideology can do to millions of people, it is astonishing that the left doesn't even want to acknowledge what happened until 1990, and the rage with which socialism was kicked out of so many counties. Someone said here, that socialism and fascism are different things. Wrong; the fascists in Germany were the NATIONAL SOCIALIST PARTY. The ideology is almost identical, as well as the methods of people control.

political ideology aside, this review snippet made me laugh.

Of course those three political positions (socialism, fascism, communism) are distinct; however, their distinguishing characteristics are trivial when examined in the context of their common exponent: statism. Rand wrote extensively on the conflict between statism (collectivism-slavery) and individualism-freedom. Words have meaning. Ideas are important. Individualists (Libertarians, Randians, Objectivists...) are not part of any sort of 'collective' - either in philosophy or action. Quite the contrary, the individual works for his own self-interest, recognizing that there is one Reality, that it is not based on whim or wishful thinking, rather, it can be understood across cultures and eras. Actions have consequences; causes have effects and effects have their causes. This is Reality. When human beings are added as a layer, you have accountability in the context that an individual shall be held accountable for the consequences of the actions pursuant the decisions made in the past. Similarly, an individual must act responsibly (be able to respond) to the future consequences of actions taken per decisions made today. Lesson: think before making a decision; and then, own the results. This is a significant measure of being an adult. The greatest threat to the Liberal Ideology is the Individual Mind.
