The people who have erroneously decided that it would be better to burn the country to the ground than relinquish power to Trump are so hopelessly in error and completely dependent on the system that enslaves them that they will fight to the end to defend it.

They can't be freed. They will drag you down if you continue to try to wake them, and free them. They will kill you before they allow you to. They will not, NOT put on the glasses.

Let the dead-weight go. Before it's too late.

 Quoting: Buffalo_Gal_13


The irrational can not be fought with reason. You see this happening all around you. You watch as they drag you down. You want to save them, but cannot.

Part of WAKING UP and saving yourself and others who are awake is accepting the reality that many, many people cannot be awakened, and that they pose an immanent threat to your survival and the survival of others.

YOU HAVE TO CUT THEM LOOSE.

Re: You Do Know You're Watching "Atlas Shrugged" Play Out Right Now, In Real Life, Don't You. And Trump Is John Galt.
I loved that book. One part that sticks in my mind is Ragnar Danneskjöld's exchange with Hank Rearden:

"What I actually am, Mr. Rearden, is a policeman. It is a policeman's duty to protect men from criminals—criminals being those who seize wealth by force. It is a policeman's duty to retrieve stolen property and return it to its owners. But when robbery becomes the purpose of the law, and the policeman's duty becomes, not the protection, but the plunder of property—then it is an outlaw who has to become a policeman."

Re: You Do Know You're Watching "Atlas Shrugged" Play Out Right Now, In Real Life, Don't You. And Trump Is John Galt.
for those who don't know Atlas Shrugged:

The book depicts a dystopian United States, wherein many of society's most prominent and successful industrialists abandon their fortunes and even the nation, in response to aggressive new regulations, whereupon most vital industries collapse. The title is a reference to Atlas, a Titan described in the novel as "the giant who holds the world on his shoulders". The significance of this reference appears in a conversation between the characters Francisco d'Anconia and Hank Rearden, in which d'Anconia asks Rearden what advice he would give Atlas upon seeing that "the greater [the titan's] effort, the heavier the world bore down on his shoulders". With Rearden unable to answer, d'Anconia gives his own response: "To shrug".

Very nice example of Trump's Razor.

‘Trump’s Razor‘ in honor of ‘Occam’s Razor’, the foundational mode of reasoning devised by the 14th century scholastic theologian William of Occam. According to Trump’s Razor: “ascertain the stupidest possible scenario that can be reconciled with the available facts” and that answer is likely correct.

Atlas Shrugged was such a great book to read, that I hated for it to end.

The movie...Dagny should have been a more powerful presence of an actress, and Eddie Willers was black, which was distracting and annoying.
