The Very Angry Tea Party (Part 4)

You know Bioshock? Fabulous game. I bought it for two reasons: the explicit Rand connection and the Art Deco design. I love Art Deco. I would argue, however, that the game does nothing to parody anything but the most cursory understanding of Rand. Though morally interesting in its own right, it contradicts her philosophy consistently. An interesting interview I saw with the designers explained this divergence as they simply do not believe people have the moral capacity to live up to her philosophy and thus deliberately created a mutation of it. Ironically, it was more like corporatism, which Rand loathes, than it was capitalism.
