I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers, and it was not there; in her fertile fields and boundless prairies, and it was not there; in her rich mines and her vast world commerce, and it was not there. Not until I went to the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”

- de Tocqueville 1831

Yes, you do.

The makers of the movie set the time into the future. The book was written in the fifties. Some of the vernacular is different but you'll recognize and relate to today's reality. Of course Ayn Rand was an athiest and has some negative things to say about religion but her politics was dead on.
