“I can see the view of Roark's idealism being selfish. I thought his opposition wasn't toward a public need but rather he opposed individuals that wanted to dictate his creativity.

I was 21 and playing music in a punk band when I read Fountainhead. Was the music I played for the public's benefit? Or was it fueled by a selfish idealism?

I was writing songs for myself then and I'm writing comics for myself now.  I'm not sure if they would be liked by the public but I'm writing comics the way I think they need to be.

I guess it will remain subjective to the viewer.

Or subjective to what the viewer needs. We project (or distort) the meaning to accommodate our own needs I guess.

I guess we need to learn how to be selfish in moderation and selfless when needs be!”

“I haven't read Atlas Shrugged. I read Rand's the Fountainhead. I didn't find it full of selfish idealism. I felt like the Fountainhead demonstrated objective sacrifice.”

“I thought her novels were cold. I saw her as an ugly woman who desperately wanted to be an artists muse.”

“Roark was pursuing his selfish ideal by creating for himself as opposed to the public.

A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.

“I believe in animal rights and the fight against animal cruelty, but guess what.. people use animals. We always have, always will.”

twowrongs on Sep 4, 2011 at 00:44:33

“Yeah, PETA is the extreme. But I like that they bring awareness to some really gruesome and cruel stuff people probably shouldn't do. Like vivisection. And cosmetic testing. I eat meat. I hunt. I wear leather. Factory farms suck. Slaughterhouses should be as humane as possible. People shouldn't use animals (like praire dogs) for target practice. (Really.) Those are my personal beliefs. There's lots of room in the middle.”

“Now I know how exactly the opposite of intelligent you trolls are! It is amazing what you will say without knowing anything about a person. You don't listen. You simply assume you are right. You believe the worst about everyone. Most of you are hypocrites who are doing the very things you preach against.

Don't take student loans? Cut up your credit cards? How are you are personally responsible for the debt ceiling? You must be another lazy American?

Without an education or venture capitol, how do I make as much money as I want? You must be the kind of people who pay extra into the debt ceiling. We owe everything to you. Don't let us forget! Who am I supposed to vote for?”

“So your kid earned $50,000. So it was the wrong kid. Someone should take a Hockey stick, slap that father in the head with it, and teach him a lesson. This isn't an entrance exam paper. This isn't an issue where the money rightfully belonged to someone else. This was a once in a lifetime shot at $50,000.

The "right" kid was outside. So nobody shoots. Nobody wins. Nobody has a chance to do the unthinkable.

Instead, my brother goes in, takes the shot. Makes the shot. Who knew that was going to happen. Seems like the lesson here is for the rest of America. While the rich and wealthy eat us alive due to some extraordinary set of principles we carry.

Those principles are for when we need to know how to treat others. I think we 'the poor' have forgotten how to treat ourselves.

Big deal, no lesson learned here. Take the money and run. Oh, never mind. Just sign your life away to outrageous student loans and credit card debt. There is a job that doesn't exist waiting for you. And guess what! In real life the nice guy ALWAYS loses!!”

“I believe common sense would dictate that the material would be "irrelevant" to the defenses case. All this material would do is prove the prosecution against the defendant. I feel you could make a ruling that there "would be no evidence to sustain the innocence of the defendant found within the material".

If the defendant is acting as his own attorney, I think he should be spending his time working on relevant portions of his case. Really, is he going to find anything that proves he is innocent somewhere in those videos?”

Photoshop Isn't Evil. There, I Said It.

Commented Jul 2, 2011 at 12:44:36 in Women

“Photography used to be art. Not computer mock up. Photo shop destroys art. Models used to work hard when it was the art of how your body moves. Staging oneself in front of the camera. Not emaciated bodies, photo altered bodies that literally don't exist.

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, how will we ever see evil?”

TheGigaShadow on Jul 2, 2011 at 15:44:30

“As usual, people try to find an evil where there isn't one. Photoshop is a tool. Saying Photoshop is evil is like saying a hammer is evil.

And it's not all about making already skinny models look skinnier. In the majority of cases, Photoshop is used to create art. Only the uninformed would think otherwise.”
