Does anyone have a way to get in touch with Daniel Chong Oh? I want to know what he thinks of the fact that his favorite director is making a film out of a book that gives a fat middle finger to all of his political beliefs.

You know that the fact he's making it now, of all the things he could be doing, probably implies he's had those beliefs all along, right? I know it's going to be painful for you, but can you try to re-analyse MoS, BvS, Sucker Punch and the rest from an Objectivist perspective, to reveal how Snyder's understanding of Objectivism was reflected in his directing choices? I'll even A2A you on Quora so that the Rand fans on there can see that.

"Maybe" is actually a pretty libertarian line. It recognizes that Superman doesn't inherently owe anybody his labor. Still, it's the ease with which he saved them that makes the scene so morally objectionable to me. Lifting a bus of kids out of a river is all in a day's work for Superman. Had he just stood by-- instead of exerting the minuscule effort necessary to save them-- he'd have been a pretty terrible person.

Anyway, I think this is a good example of what I call Banana Theory. Politicians such as Obama will often say "What unites us is greater than what divides us," emphasizing that people have more in common than not. But humans share 60% of their DNA with a banana. So technically, we have more in common with bananas than not. It's that remaining 40% that makes the difference. I may agree with Zack Snyder politically, but if there's even a 1% difference between us, that's the difference between a human and a chimp.
