I’ve argued with my share of die-hard libertarians – glib and otherwise – in my time writing this blog. So I find Mallory Ortberg’s “Ayn Rand Reviews Children’s Movies” in the New Yorker to be especially hilarious.
The biggest and the strongest are the fittest to rule. This is the way things have always been. —Four stars.
Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory:

I believe more movies should be made about enterprising young boys who are given factories. —Three and a half stars. (Half a star off for the grandparents, who are sponging off the labor of Charlie and his mother. If Grandpa Joe can dance, Grandpa Joe can work.)
