Ayn Rand Reviews Children’s Movies

Brilliant:

Ayn Rand Reviews Children’s Movies
By Mallory Ortberg
December 18, 2014

“Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”

An industrious young woman neglects to charge for her housekeeping services and is rightly exploited for her naïveté. She dies without ever having sought her own happiness as the highest moral aim. I did not finish watching this movie, finding it impossible to sympathize with the main character. —No stars.

“Bambi”

The biggest and the strongest are the fittest to rule. This is the way things have always been. —Four stars.

“Old Yeller”

A farm animal ceases to be useful and is disposed of humanely. A valuable lesson for children. —Four stars.

2. Ayn Rand: An old talentless windbag, collects social security

and rails against it. Should have been put out of societies misery. Owes society stars.

3. Hilarious!

I'd like to see some reviews of seasonal classics: The tragedy of how the great capitalist Ebenezer Scrooge is undone by morbid visions caused by a blot of mustard (or was it a fragment of an underdone potato), and the scandalous story of how Bedford Falls turned it back on the great Mr Potter and turned to socialism.
