I've pretty much seen every ANIMATED movie in the DC universe. Their animated movies are SO MUCH BETTER than they live action, but I'm starting this book hoping that it will be in better description kind alike a George R.R.Martin book compared to the shows...Batman is made out to be pretty much infallible in all the animated movies. The one member of the JLA who doesn't have any super powers, but this one open up with a enemy Brother Eye-- one of Batman's project gone wild and seeking to kill super powered beings...Let's see how this writer shows any emotion from Batman when he has to deal with his mistake and it's affect on the JLA...

Do you consider a comic to a "book" or a worthwhile read? Explain?

SYNOPSIS Exotic Neurotic is a book of poetry which involves subject matter such as depression, imbalance within one’s personal self, angst, frustration, youthfulness, antisocial behavior, and violence. In addition, many of Exotic Neurotic’s thematic properties also pertain to love, illness, death, human anatomy, physical deformities, elimination, birth, and abortion.

BY OUR LOVE. Again a little confused. d’Anconia comes out of nowhere to find Dagny and basically explains that he knew all this was going to happen ahead of time. Again, I don’t understand this character’s omniscience. He seems to appeal to Dagny that they are equals now or that they should be together because they are united or the same kind of people. Dagny proves him wrong. Dagny hears about the train wreck and runs back to the railroad to assist. When d’Aconia was describing them, he made it sound as if they were different because they weren’t in the system. They were to stand against it. They would not be cogs in the machine. But Dagny runs back to the railroad. I’m a little confused at why? The book explains that she knows she will be blamed for the accident yet she returns? I see no bravery or anything remarkable about her return. I would think she would have let the railroad sink or swim and in this point in the novel-SINK. SO what are we talking about? Are we talking about socialism? Socialism: bad- Capitalism: good? Is this one of those arguments. I think that most educated people will not fall into the trap of such a polarizing argument. I think most people can find the good or bad in both types of systems. I think in most political systems, you can find a mixture of politics. Capitolist societies have elements of socialism. China is a communist society, but has elements of capitalism.  Are we talking about scientific management – where humans are regarded as cogs in a machine? Production is the only concern and the human element, the thoughts, instincts and feelings of a human are not considered? The book is fog. The ideas are not clear. The entire book is shrouded. I keep waiting for some clarity of ideas and for Rand to get to the point. 

“ …..Your kind of intellectuals are the first to scream when it’s safe- and the first to shut their traps at the first sign of danger. Tey spend years spitting at the man who feeds them- and lick the hand of the man who slaps their drooling faces. Didn’t they deliver every country of Europe, one after another, to committees of goons, just like this on here? Didn’t the scream their heads off to shut out every burglar alarm and to break every padlock open for the goons? Have you heard a peep out of them since? Didn’t they scream that they were the friends of labor? Do you hear them raising their voices about the chain gangs, the slave camps, the fourteen-hour workday and the mortality from scurvy in the People’s States of Europe? No, but you do hear them telling the whip-beaten wretches that starvation is prosperity, that slavery is freedom, that torture chambers are brother-love and that if the wretches don’t understand it, then it’s their own fault that they suffer, and it’s the mangled corpses in the jail cellars who’re to blame for all their troubles, not the benevolent leaders! Intellectuals? You might have to worry about another breed of men, but not about modern intellectuals: they’ll swallow anything. I don’t’ feel so safe about the lousiest wharf rat in the longshormen’s union: he’s liable to remember suddenly that he is a man- and then I won’t be able to keep him inline. But the intellectuals? That’s the one thing they’ve forgotten long ago. I guess it’s the one thing that all their education was aimed to make them forget. Do anything you please to the intellectuals. They’ll take it……..

“ …..You don’t’ have to worry about the intellectuals Wesley. Just put a few of them on the government payroll an send them out to preach precisely the sort of thing Mr. Kinnan mentioned: that the blame rests on the victims. Give them moderately confortable salaries and extremely loud titles- and they’ll forget their copyrights and do a better job for you than whole squads of enforcement officers.”
