  • Pot Stirrer

    Rock Giant is the USA, coastal town is the world. Discuss.

  • ReindeerFlotilla

    Nah, clearly the writer is a Randian objectivist who figured out how to condense ‘Atlas Shrugged” into a 30 sec short.

  • Gavin Mouldey

    the big rock is the threat of unstoppable war, or the glorification of danger, or the military industrial complex, placed on the mountain top (pedestal) by the rock giant. The entire scenario was caused by his/her ego and blind ambition.
