    Seems a little over the top with the utopia they've formed in opposition to pretty much everything Rand believed in. Still, it's better than the other April Fool's Day pranks I've seen. ( I didn't participate this year, too busy with other things, but I plan a belated celebration… )

    I am reminded of Paul Jennings's "Report on Resistentialism" (in Dwight Macdonald's Parodies volume of 1960, pp. 394-404). Resistentialism is the philosophy espoused by Pierre-Marie Ventre, under the slogan "Les choses sont contre nous".
