Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) October 11, 2012
The first screenings of Atlas Shrugged Part 2 will begin a minute after midnight tonight.
David Kelley, founder of the Atlas Society, was deeply involved in consulting on the script. He's available for interviews and commenting on the following:
--The ideas of Atlas Shrugged
--The rising popularity of the novel
--Why is the novel considered by many to be "prophetic" of current events in the U.S.?
Other possible topics:
--Why are Ayn Rand's ideas so controversial?
-- Why was she called a "radical for capitalism"?
-- The erosion of individual rights: how Rand foresaw that trend.
--What would Ayn say about ObamaCare (and why should anyone care)?
David Kelley is available at (202) 296-7263 (AYN-RAND) Extension #1.
(The call will ring through to his cell phone.)
