Funny, I always thought the Ayn Rand Institute/The Atlas Society had a kind of Scientology-esque recruitment philosophy. Certainly I remember in high school there would be ARI essay contests in the like. Perhaps this movie is an attempt to capitalize on Tea Party discontents, and use it to sell Ayn Rand's philosophy to middle America. But it took John Travolta to bring Battlefield Earth to the big screen, so who's behind this? You were allowed to know about Rand in high school? I think she is banned from schools where I grew up.
