Here's the link to the website: Atlas Shrugged
The trailer shows promise, but I'm sure Hollywood will screw up the true message of the book.
"Whenever destroyers appear among men, they start by destroying money (think: the Fed/U.S. Treasury), for money is men's protection and the base of a moral existence. Destroyers seize gold and leave to its owners a counterfeit pile of paper (think: FDR 1933). This kills all objective standards and delivers men into the arbitrary power of an arbitrary setter of values. Gold was an objective value, an equivalent of wealth produced. Paper is a mortgage on wealth that does not exist...Paper is a check drawn by legal looters upon an account which is not theirs: upon the virtue of the victims."
