I went to see Atlas Shrugged Part III the night it opened. The evening led me to reflect on what had attracted me to Ayn Rand as a twenty-something graduate student in economics.
And let it be said: I was very attracted to her ideas. I appreciated how she dramatized the evils of a centrally planned economy. I was persuaded by her depiction of the fast descent of economic control into a totalitarian state.

You're going to go out there, you're going to battle, you're going to fight, you're going to do it for one another, you're going to do it for each other and you're going to do it for us and you're going to come out with this win and we believed that.
