Atlas Productions LLC announced today its plan to replace more than 100,000 title sheets appearing on the Atlas Shrugged Part 1 DVD and Blu-ray versions sold through major retail outlets. These retail versions were packaged with an inaccurate synopsis of Atlas Shrugged. [...]
[T]he movie’s synopsis contradictorily states “AYN RAND’s timeless novel of courage and self-sacrifice comes to life…”
Atlas Shrugged was, of course, Rand’s warning against the alleged dangers of self-sacrifice.
This is consistent with Rand’s atheist worldview. In the absence of an external, omnipotent arbiter of right and wrong, the only logical course of action for an atheist/objectivist is, “Do unto others — and do it quick, before they do it to you.”
