King Cry-Potato Glenn Beck Wants to Build an Ayn Rand Theme Park
This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by OKNancy (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).
Glenn believes that he can bring the heart and the spirit of Walt's early Disneyland ideas into reality. Independence, USA wouldn't be about rides and merchandise, but would be about community and freedom. The Marketplace would be a place where craftmen and artisan could open and run real small businesses and stores...
There would also be an Media Center, where Glenn's production company would film television, movies, documentaries, and more. Glenn hoped to include scripted television that would challenge viewers without resorting to a loss of human decency. He also said it would be a place where aspiring journalists would learn how to be great reporters.
Across the lake, there would be a church modeled after The Alamo which would act as a multi-denominational mission center. The town will also have a working ranch where visitors can learn how to farm and work the land.
Independence would also be home to a Research and Development center where people would come to learn, innovate, educate, and create. There would be a theme park for people to recharge and have fun with their families.
People would also have the option to live in Independence, with a residential area where people of different incomes could all come together and be neighbors.

This has already been done at the bottom of the sea by Andrew Ryan in the forties! It did not turn out well for him.
"During the making of Rapture, Andrew Ryan quickly realized that many children would immigrate to the city with their parents or be born within it. He also knew that these children were bound to hear stories of the surface and may someday wish to leave Rapture. However, this would conflict with one of the main laws of Rapture, which was to keep Rapture itself a secret, allowing no one to leave. Thus, after construction of the city was completed, Ryan had his inner circle of Ryan Industries, including Carlson Fiddle, Augustus Sinclair, and Sofia Lamb help design and build a park to instill fear in children of the horrors on "the surface." Ryan had his ideals incorporated into the park to show the triumphs of Rapture and the injustices of the surface thus convincing the children that the surface was unfit for them. The park was then completed as Ryan Amusements. However, many people, including Lamb and Fiddle, saw this park as not for the children, but as a shrine for Ryan himself. This conflicting view resulted in Lamb's resignation from Ryan Industries.
Ryan had many attractions built in Ryan Amusements, such as the ride known as "Journey to the Surface", a restaurant for the guests known as the El Dorado Lounge, a Plasmid store for the adults and parents known as the Hall of the Future, a gift shop, and a museum dedicated to the making of Rapture known as the Rapture Memorial Museum.
