    I imagine the trilogy will become a big flop.

    Instead, watch the 1942 classic, We the Living



    As I said, I find it to be her best work.

    I'm sure you'll enjoy it inordinately.

    BTW I just noticed you're taking the weewee. There's never been a film of the Zamyatin book and none planned.

    One of the most basic considerations of morality is in how we treat others, specifically in a non selfish or harmful manner. The idea that one can be selfish and moral is a paradox.

    Well I was referring to your notion that she heavily influenced modern conservativism. Yes, I know Limbaugh, Hannity love her work, but I wanted to know why YOU thought she had a major influence? Since you brought it up, do you really believe that the idea that one can be selfish and moral is a paradox? I would to hear your ideas on this.
