What do radical Greens and Atlas Shrugged have in common?

“Progress cannot be planned by government; it can only be stopped, as every statist government has demonstrated.” – Ayn Rand

One of the core tenants of radical environmentalists is that progress must be planned by government in order to protect “Mother Nature” from the evil capitalists. This is despite history’s clear teaching of the opposite, with the environmental disasters of the centrally planned Soviet Union being only one of many examples.

The movie Atlas Shrugged Part II premieres October 12, and vividly portrays how government planning produces stagnation and halts progress. And with economic stagnation comes environmental destruction. Watch the trailer for this exciting new film above.

Nature suffers when people suffer. If you care about the environment, then you should care about progress. And as this movie demonstrates and history attests, the free market is the most efficient path to progress.
