when you get to school and realize you forgot to put on deodorant
I AM SO FUCKiNG SICK OF TUMBLR
HOW THE FUCK CAN I RELATE TO THIS ARMADILDO
I DONT FUCKING KNOW BUT I CAN
I CANT TELL YOU HOW BUT I KNOW EXACTLY HOW THIS ARMADILLO FITS HERE FUCK TUMBLR YOUVE RUINED MY LIFE
displacednoble said: "Abbysucks is the Ayn Rand of Tumblr socio-political comics." I'm fucking crying, yes, the gay woman who supports equality for all is identical Ayan Rand. JFC do these people even know what they are trying to say?
its geuinely a little insulting to be equated to one of the worst authors of one of the worst books that every virgin (in the FIRST OF sense) nihilist douchebag freshman-in-college uses as their bible
one of these days, god willing, someone will actually tell me what is so incendiary about ayn rand’s work. Far as I can see it all just boils down to ‘do what you want as long as it doesn’t involve screwing anyone over’.
Or is it not anything to do with that? Is it just that there are people who are both assholes and objectivists that everyone hates? If so I’m yet to find one of these people.
Anyone have an answer for me? What am I missing here?
you ever play bioshock
bioshock is a great game to play where you can learn about the core ideals behind ayn rand and that piece of shit book “atlas shrugged”. if youre unfamiliar with either (the author, the book…bioshock) it all basically boils down to this: there are those destined to achieve greatness through hard work and perseverance (a negligible point), and those that achieve greatness owe nothing to anybody but themselves, and the working class/poor/anybody else who have NOT acheived greatness are all lazy, entitled leeches who should just be grateful that THE GREATS have blessed us with their presence
it basically re-enforces a very stupid and arrogant belief that those who are successful deserve to be at the top, got there through their sheer will to do so, and that those who are not successful are inherently worthless and deserve to be at the bottom to suffer, scrounge, and die like rats
its like caste system 101 but for people who want to delude themselves into not feeling bad that certain successes came at the expense of others labor or that their success was inherited
Bioshock was a bad argument against objectivism for so many, many reasons. Trying to deduce anything about her beliefs from Bioshock is like trying to form a concept of immigration issues off the movie ‘Elysium, or understand Plato from Aristotle’s criticisms of Plato’s work.
I have yet to find someone who’s read Ayn Rand’s fiction and who can argue on what she actually believed.
the reason i brought up bioshock was because most people havent read atlas shrugged (and i dont recommend the book either but thats just me) whereas most people play video games and bioshock is a game that basically baby-feeds ayn rand to yas
regardless she aint one of my favorite authors and/or philosophers, if she can be called as much. thats about all i can really say on the subject
Wait a minute…what you said about Bioshock…sounds awfully familiar…
Wait…ISN’T THIS WHAT RADICAL CONSERVATIVES OR LIBERTARIANS BELIEVE?
