Does Atlas Shrugged have any particular relevance to the strip? Alpha (talk) 02:14, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

Ayn Rand is pretty controversial, and a lot of people dismiss her books outright. Some of them are an interesting read, though. -- (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

There is a factual inaccuracy in the explanation here — her philosophy is libertarian, not conservative. Please fix that. 14:47, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

"far-right" ??? This very subjective and insulting. But I guess it's the aim of such assertion. 07:47, 14 October 2013 (UTC) Another inaccuracy: Rand herself found the Libertarians, like any political party, to be counterintuitive to her philosophy of Objectivism. Though I think "libertarian" should be changed to "objectivism," I'll leave it and just make a side-note, because one could say that Atlas Shrugged is to Libertarians as the Bible is to Christians.

I have to agree, Objectivism is a philosophy, Libertarianism is a political movement. Although the two have a few overlaps, they are very different things. Rand was adamantly opposed the Libertarian Party and and wrote quite a bit about her objections. 23:36, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Does Libertarianism have anything to do with this strip? Why is it included 21:24, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Reading Atlas Shrugged right now. Randal's political beliefs would probably place him among the villains of the piece, a comic criticizing an influential work based on taste might place him there as well. Doesn't matter, my terrible tastes lead to me reading Atlas shrugged and xkcd so... careful Randal. 14:12, 3 December 2019 (UTC)
