• • Departing Depardieu: French Icon Says “Non” to Taxes, Gives DC a Lesson 
,
Atlas Shrugged  | Gerard Depardieu, France’s best known thespian, [...] has announced that he won’t pay one cent more to his rapacious government, and will leave France rather than be taxed further. By playing the lead role in this real life Atlas Shrugged, Depardieu is showing would-be taxers all over what happens when you inflict too much pain on the people. Washington, which is at the moment agonizing over just how much more to tax already over-taxed Americans, should take notice of the consequences.

,
Atheism  |Atlas Shrugged movie  |Atlas Shrugged  |Capitalism  |Video  | With mounting concern over America’s welfare state and growing dependence on government, the producers of “Atlas Shrugged: Part II” hope the timing of their movie brings clarity to the debate. It makes its big-screen debut on Oct. 12, less than a month before Election Day. At the Heritage’s Bloggers Briefing yesterday, producers Harmon Kaslow and John Aglialoro discussed the principles of individual liberty, free markets and limited government that encapsulate the latest installment of Ayn Rand’s classic book, “Atlas Shrugged.”

,
Atlas Shrugged  |The Fountainhead  | Book review: The Liberty Intrigue, by Tom Grace.
Grace [uses] archetypes the reader knows so he can give timely, direct commentary on America’s challenges, just as Ayn Rand voiced her objectivist philosophy through works like The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged in the 1940s and ‘50s.

• • • Atlas Shrugged Part I: Eerily familiar 
,
Atlas Shrugged movie  |Atlas Shrugged  |Video  | No American is allowed to own more than one business. All employers must pay wages dictated by the government and must provide jobs for those who need them. Unfair competition is outlawed, ensuring that every person who wants to be in business can have an equal share of the work available. The Bureau of Economic Planning and National Resources can announce new taxes on more profitable businesses and states at any time to “even out” opportunities for poorer states and less successful companies. This is the economic scene that unfolds in the new movie Atlas Shrugged: Part I—and if it sounds like the dream of many on the left in Washington today, that’s no coincidence.
