John Stossel Special on Atlas Shrugged Book (now upcoming film)

Posted by iusbvision on March 10, 2011

If you read just one book in your life besides the Bible it should be Atlas Shrugged. It is fun, a total page turner, completely gripping, and you will walk away smarter and with a much better understanding of human nature.

The trailer: 

Atlas Shrugged is the “second most influential book for Americans today” after the Bible, according to a joint survey conducted by the Library of Congress and the Book of the Month Club.

The man with the southern accent said that Rand is an Aristotelian. He is difficult to understand. I would say that such a statement is 85% true.

The challenge.

View this clip. It will very likely offend you, especially if you are a college student.

View this clip now. Get the book. Read the book. Don’t let the length bother you. Once you read the first 30 pages you will not be able to put it down. When you are finished come back and view the clip.

You will realize that how you percieve the world and man after will be far superior and you will see in the clip what others are mentally and/or spiritually incapable of seeing.

Welcome to a new world you never knew existed.

Questions to consider:

As you can see, Hank is disgusted with the other people in the room. Why?

When asked if he cares about the poor and downtrodden Hank says no. Is Hank being flippant or does he really mean it?

Hank gives plenty to charity and provides thousands of people with good paying jobs. If he doesn’t care why do those things?

Could it be there there are poor people that Hank does care about and those he doesn’t? Yes? No? Explain.
