Let the Market Fix It

Via Rising Hegemon an interesting press release:
The 1957 novel, Atlas Shrugged, is known in philosophical and political circles for presenting a cogent argument advocating a society driven by rational self-interest. On the back of the film's retail DVD and Blu-ray however, the movie’s synopsis contradictorily states “AYN RAND’s timeless novel of courage and self-sacrifice comes to life...”

“It’s embarrassing for sure and of course, regardless of how or why it happened, we’re all feeling responsible right now.” says Scott DeSapio, Atlas Productions’ COO and Communications Director “You can imagine how mortified we all were when we saw the DVD but, it was simply too late - the product was already on shelves all over the Country. It was certainly no surprise when the incredulous emails ensued. The irony is inescapable.”
I would buy one beer for the first person in the command chain who said "How much do you think it's worth for me to fix it?" but only if that person also buys me one beer.

For an instant on reading that I thought that it was suicide because the other explanation is just too far away from Randroids.

What red-blooded,American Christian wants to indulge in self-sacrifice. Jesus in a flaky crust, Christ died on the cross so we wouldn't have to.

No room in the gulch for you now, Scotty!
