Hey, Ayn Rand made bad art. Why should the extreme right wingers have all the fun?

Stalin would have LOVED this. He used to enjoy watching American westerns and critiquing them according to how much they deviated from the communist ideology.

The modern-day equivalent would be Maoists reviewing videogames.
