  • I dutifully watched Atlas Shrugged Part III, which was released on September 12 to local movie theaters. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlas_Shrugged:_Part_III As expected, there were not many people in my theater. I must admit that I have a hard time arguing with the one (somewhat negative) review I have seen: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/review/atlas-shrugged-part-iii-who-732632 The film was obviously fairly low budget, and I did not find the philosophical content much higher or very persuasive. Even if this film was seen by large numbers of people, I doubt they would be very inspired or educated. From that point of view, the high point of the film was where John Galt was being offered great economic power by the US President, when Galt said “that kind of power should not exist”.  But I think that there should have been stronger emphasis on the fact that Galt was being tortured in order to force him to become an economic dictator (under the President).  As portrayed, it simply looked like they were trying to hurt him because they didn’t like what he did or said. I was somewhat turned-off by the masses chanting “We want John Galt” — as if they were looking for a new dictator to replace the President. The movie portrayed a decaying society, but could have better emphasized how modern fascism of regulation is at least as economically destructive as socialism. On a less cerebral level, I was turned-off by the chocolate cake that Dagney and John were eating. Also, John’s partly unshaven face reinforced my impression that for many women being partly unshaven is very sexy.

  • This evening, FBI Director James Comey is giving the keynote speech at “The Expectation of Privacy: Encryption, Surveillance and Big Data” conference at a local college.  I am planning on attending. I do not know if the audience will be allowed to ask him questions or not.  If there is a Q&A, does anyone have any ideas for good questions to ask him.

  •   Wow these scammers are really stepping it up a notch. I hope this undermines confidence in government. They make threats just the way a government would.     Return-Path: <[email protected]> X-Original-To: Delivered-To: Received: from ogo01.cncm.ne.jp (ogo01.cncm.ne.jp [202.228.249.15]) by  (Postfix) with ESMTP id F2EAB20271 for <>; Thu, 25 Dec 2014 09:32:38 +0000 (UTC) Received: from drop04.cncm.ne.jp (mail.cncm.ne.jp [202.228.249.10]) by ogo01.cncm.ne.jp (Postfix) with ESMTP id 8E88917DF9 for <>; Thu, 25 Dec 2014 18:32:29 +0900 (JST) Received: from relay04.cncm.ne.jp (unknown [202.228.249.10]) by drop04.cncm.ne.jp (unknown) with ESMTP id 8169C9E2DF for <>; Thu, 25 Dec 2014 18:32:29 +0900 (JST) Received: from aspam12.cncm.ne.jp (unknown [202.228.249.27]) by relay04.cncm.ne.jp (unknown) with ESMTP id 73685A221A for <>; Thu, 25 Dec 2014 18:32:29 +0900 (JST) Message-Id: <[email protected]> Received: from mail.cncm.ne.jp (HELO mail05.cncm.ne.jp) ([202.228.249.10]) by aspam12.cncm.ne.jp with ESMTP; 25 Dec 2014 18:32:29 +0900 Received: from User (unknown [114.134.136.142]) by mail05.cncm.ne.jp (unknown) with SMTP id 0F6124B2A1; Thu, 25 Dec 2014 18:32:01 +0900 (JST) Reply-To: <[email protected]> From: “AGENT MARK GIULIANO”<[email protected]> To: [email protected] Subject: RE: FROM THE FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION (FBI) Date: Thu, 25 Dec 2014 10:32:25 +0100 MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: text/html; charset=”Windows-1251” Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit X-Priority: 3 X-MSMail-Priority: Normal X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2600.0000 X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V6.00.2600.0000 X-SA-Poll-Id: 1419500162751..com.sun.mail.imap.IMAPMessage X-SA-USERIDNR: 3497508 Received-SPF: fail(ic.fbi.gov: domain of ic.fbi.gov does not designate 202.228.249.15 as permitted sender) X-SA-MPREASON: SPF Failed – Preference is Unverified
