ATLAS SULKS addresses the issue of the privatization of the Commons, in this case the Airwaves which belong to the American People. With a satirical look at right wing Talk Radio and Ayn Randian philosophy, the story shows how self entitled individuals can take the nation’s resources as their own possessions. If they aren’t deterred, they’ll reap unaccountable wealth, and amass even more power. More
A corporation intends to steal our airwaves!
The President of the herculean Atlas Radio Company,
beautiful, headstrong Dabny Talbett schemes to
privatize the nation’s airwaves.
She enlists Hondo Roache, a high powered lobbyist
to wrest the needed votes from two mulish senators.
Opposing Dabny is Rafe Nailer,
the dogged leader of the Public Cause Group.
He and his feisty fiancée, Vera Standfore sometimes fight with words,
other times they fight with their fists.
Throughout the story appear the relentless Talk Radio Hosts.
Their outlandish bloviations demonstrate a truly unhinged viewpoint,
The Hosts make millions for Dabny.
She’ll make millions more when she owns the airwaves.
But she’ll lose millions if Rafe wins the battle.
ATLAS SULKS is timely.
It’s also deviously subtle and funny in very sly way.
