I made it to about page 600 and couldn't force myself to continue.

Smellvin - 2011-04-19

Page 24 the first time as a teenager. Later in life, I assumed that I didn't like it as a teenager because I wasn't getting the subtlety, was too young, etc. I made it to page 42 the next time. It's just a shitty book.

South Park and Ayn Rand in the same clip, the suck cancels out!

poorwill - 2011-04-18

The South Park guys are actually huge libertarians and are never happy unless they're sucking Ayn Rand's pendulous, decaying zombie balls. A criticism of 'long and boring', from a character consistently depicted as being stupid and despicable, is about the meanest thing you could ever get out of Trey Parker on the subject of Objectivism.
5 stars for being as retarded as Scott Adams.

misterbuns - 2011-04-19

Oh man you sure have Trey Parker figured out.

poorwill - 2011-04-19

He's shit and is friends with Penn Jillette.

Cena_mark - 2011-04-19

I don't think they were praising Ayn Rand. I'm a Libertarian and I don't care to read her stuff. You're just judging us libertarians on stereotypes.

KillerGazebo - 2011-04-19

Oh, well, if CENA is a libertarian they MUST be okay.

Merzbau - 2011-04-19

cena you've never given us any indication that you read




eatenmyeyes - 2011-04-19

You do remember that the person recommending the book to Barbrady was the guy that raped chickens, right? Lots of libertarians find Ayn Rand to be worthless.

Cena_mark - 2011-04-19

Well neither have you.

simon666 - 2011-04-19

*rim shot* The AM show is different than the PM show, folks. Stick around...

cognitivedissonance - 2011-04-19

The problem with Libertarians is that, by definition, you can't kick the lame ones out, as you don't have any rules by which to do so.

CharlesSmith - 2011-04-19

Imagine being so angry at "libertarians" that you have to go around disingenuously interpreting jokes.

poorwill - 2011-04-19

What are you talking about, you stupid cunt?

Caminante Nocturno - 2011-04-19

Libertarians are worthless.

poorwill - 2011-04-19

"You do remember that the person recommending the book to Barbrady was the guy that raped chickens, right? Lots of libertarians find Ayn Rand to be worthless."

Yeah, but Trey Parker is a libertarian - why would he have a problem with anybody raping chickens? When Barbrady beats him to death for trying to forge his own destiny, it's pretty clear who the REAL villain is.

Parker wasn't necessarily praising Ayn Rand, but he definitely wasn't taking a shot at her either. It's not really clear why he threw in Atlas Shrugged at all - is Barbrady trashing it meant to make him look uncharacteristically smart, or is it a 'you can lead a horse to water' kind of thing, or some mix of both?
Given Parker's particular stripe of libertarianism is practically indistinguishable from Rand's, if he's taking a shot at her at all it's that she couldn't write for shit ... and that's as far as it goes. 'Ayn Rand is a bad writer' is not a biting criticism of Ayn Rand.

poorwill - 2011-04-19

Oh, you know.

Bort - 2011-04-19

Parker is probably a libertarian in that he's a Republican who thinks he's a cut above the "ordinary" Republicans, and he has no use for the War on Drugs. The guy had harsher things to say about Al Gore from 2001 to 2009 than he did about a president whom historians are already lining up to declare the worst or second worst in history, and whom "real" libertarians found to be pretty objectionable.

SteamPoweredKleenex - 2011-04-19

I never got their 'satire' of Al Gore. I mean, the guy is easy to imitate, even for them, and they came up with this 'super serial' thing which he never even says. I also found it even more inept that they came out with an episode where Gore causes a cave-in with a shotgun the same month that Dick Cheney actually shot a man in the face with a shotgun.

misterbuns - 2011-04-19

Southpark makes fun of stupid shit.

Get over it.

SteamPoweredKleenex - 2011-04-19

Actually, they seem to ignore a lot of stupid shit. They ignored loads of stupid shit going on with a sitting Prez and VP to concentrate on an ex-politician.

Cena_mark - 2011-04-19

What is everyone's beef with libertarians? We're the only party that doesn't want to take any of your freedoms away.

cognitivedissonance - 2011-04-19

"It is my freedom to do something, even if that something is socially unacceptable! DOWN WITH BIG GOVERNMENT!"

"What about gay marriage and the legalization of marijuana?"

"Oh, by all means, legislate the hell out of those. Bombs away."

Smellvin - 2011-04-19

You're confusing Republicans with libertarians. Given how some Republicans who realized how stupid Bush actually was started falsely calling themselves libertarians, I can see how you might make that mistake.

Bort - 2011-04-19

Libertarians (and Republicans and Teabaggers) make the mistake of thinking that only the government can take away freedoms. But history shows that other institutions, such as churches or businesses, can limit peoples' freedoms too, and their excesses need to be curbed.

If you lose your arm in an industrial accident, do you consider your freedoms compromised? If jobs in your area pay so little that you can't afford a car and try your luck in another town, do you consider your freedoms compromised?

Libertarians trust the free market to correct injustices, and perhaps it eventually does, but not necessarily swiftly or with a minimum of collateral damage. Basically, we already tried things the Libertarian way, and it sucked, which is why we have the mean ol' "nanny state". Imagine, when you buy meat you can feel confident it won't contain maggots, or when you drop your kids off at a daycare center you know the staff have been trained and background-checked.

memedumpster - 2011-04-19

Half our meat is contaminated with staph. Google Ron Paul.

kingofthenothing - 2011-04-19

The Road, dude. The Road. All the cannibals and kid-rapers are Libertarians.

Mr. Purple Cat Esq. - 2011-04-19

What is the deal with this whole atlas shrugged thing? It is a fictional novel right. what is wrong with americans? Can you please actually read some non-fiction books which at least purport to be dealing with reality, maybe even ones where the author has conucted research and might even have some data to back up a particular hypothesis.

glendower - 2011-04-19

Fictional narratives and nonfiction alike shape ideology. Not sure what your complaint is.

Bort - 2011-04-19

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: "The Lord of the Rings" and "Atlas Shrugged". One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

Mend0zA - 2011-04-19

Stars for Bort

Bort - 2011-04-19

Is not a Bort original saying; comes from a guy named John Rogers over at kfmonkey.blogspot.com.

Jet Bin Fever - 2011-04-19

haha still great.

kingofthenothing - 2011-04-19

Real life is often boring as fuck. Boring, man. I'm not going to sit there and read about some other boring as fuck bullshit. Fuck it. I need something to drink.
