    The evil in Gattaca wasn't in the genetic manipulation, it was the arbitrary categorization of individuals for life in the guise of a meritocracy.   Rand's world does the same thing, with less accuracy than gene reading.

    "One faction of one party in one House of Congress in one branch of government doesn't get to shut down the entire government just to refight the results of an election."

      Vincent did everything to prove he was a good as the elites and made it, despite being classified as an "In- Valid".

      Classifying people with some arbitrary rating system (rich, white, male, etc.) means some wonderful, productive people are unable to make a contribution that could make everyone's life better.

      Then again, Republicans aren't real clever when it comes to seeing the underlying meaning of art - songs, movies or anything else.
