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.

Also, another question I might ask Quora (though it probably was asked on there already): should the worth of an ideology be judged by the caliber of its adherents? If so, that would be rather sad for Objectivism. I am probably missing people, but as far as I am aware, its most prominent adherents today are Zack Snyder, Paul Ryan, the new nominally Muslim British Home Minister (who re-reads that very book twice a year), and Ron and Rand Paul. Now, I like the latter because of their non-interventionism and opposition to torture, but an ideology might still be in trouble if they are the best it has to offer.

One of my favorite philosophers is Nietzsche, whose ideas were twisted by Nazis to justify the idea of the "superior race." Just because someone perverts a philosopher's ideas doesn't mean the philosopher is responsible for what they did. I think I've been consistent in this regard (even with Karl Marx, who I think is pretty evil, but who I don't blame at all for the Soviet Union). The gulags may have been the rational conclusion of Marxist thought, but he certainly didn't explicitly endorse them.

That said, there's a big difference between that and Objectivism. You can draw a line from Marxism to Vladimir Lenin pretty easily. What you can't do is draw a line from Objectivism to Paul Ryan. That man is the physical embodiment of cognitive dissonance. There is not enough room under a tent for both Jesus and Ayn Rand-- that's just a fact. You cannot read The Fountainhead, say you agree with everything in it, and then turn around and embrace the Bible. Now, Ryan is likely a closet agnostic (like nearly all politicians), but that doesn't change the fact that he holds various beliefs that are clearly antithetical to one another.

Also, we have Mark Cuban and Jimmy Wales. And Gene Roddenberry.

A trailer of Showdown in Manila, a 2016 movie where our aging B-list actor gathers up a few other B and C-list actors, both ours and Western. Like Russian Expendables, where the protagonist is Russo-Filipino according to the plot.

Found this after glancing through Kritikanstvo's "worst of all time" list.

I relish referencing The Room are particularly opportune moments like that, though whether my use of it conveyed the same type of sincerity that Johnny infused into his greeting for Denny is anyone痴 guess.

Did you ever watch Isle of Dogs? I was flirting with the idea of making a parody script with you playing multiple roles like Peter Sellers in Dr. Strangelove.

I'm sure Jed can get him a discount being a "regular" and all.

Going Cobbhunting at Denver Comic Con with my dad and sister, as David Tennant and Billie Piper are slated to be here, which is a perfect lure for Dommy (us my sister is going to meet the former regardless).

Gay guy writes on Twitter that he wishes he could be who he is in his Muslim-majority country. Social justice retards call him Islamophobic, send his information to his country's authorities. He subsequently drinks poison to avoid whatever punishment was in store for him.
The dumb rating is for the story in the article, not for the fact that you posted it fyi.

Well, first, it's not an article, but a series of tweets. Second, the rating could be actualy be justified since his post borders on fake news.

Whether or not it was SJWs appears controversial. The closest I found to a proof seems to be this earlier tweet by same guy who posted the rest of this, saying it was "communists" upset over his criticism of communism rather than Islam. It should be noted it offers no proof and is by a guy with the following bio:

Rants represent me and not @Tesco (former) or @EA (current employer). Lego-sexual. Blocked by @CIA. Gender: Patriot. Pronouns: La/Li/Lu/Le/Lo. """"Do better"""

 Moreover, another tweet offers this as a proof it was a 4chan false flag. I have no idea about the claim (I ain't wading through that 40 minute video for this), but it's something to keep in mind.

Also, the last sentence is rather manipulative and loose with the facts. It implies he died, whereas it seems that he's still alive and will make it, but end up practically disabled. This is because he didn't drink "poison" per se, but bleach or drain cleaner or some other shit like that.

Lastly, while the difference appears irrelevant here, his stated country (Indonesia) technically has no legal punishments for homosexuality, unless he was living in their equivalent of Chechnya. (There's a reason the guy's comic that started it all showed protesters, rather than the government, advocating this shit.)
