* How is this is considered to be an [[UsefulNotes/{{Objectivism}} Objectivist]] comic? Two chapters of the comic directly contradict Creator/AynRand's views on war. ''Better Days'' has a strongly pro-war slant, in both cases glorifying military action in Vietnam and the Gulf War, whereas Rand said that when military action for any reason other than self-defense should be avoided, as self-defense is the '''only''' reason why it would be in the self-interest of a country to participate in war. Rand considered the United States' participation in UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar to have been borne out of altruism, which she opposed, whereas the Gulf War derived from similar reasons that did not involve the self-defense ''or'' self-interest of the country. In fact, the whole of Creator/JayNaylor's oeuvre seems to suggest more of a conservative, if anything, leaning, rather than Objectivism, as none of the few elements that could be attributable to Objectivism also exist within Objectivism, and there's a pretty huge contradiction that separates this comic from being influenced by Randian philosophy. (There's also the anti-abortion stance in the comic, which differs from Rand's own views, as she was in favor of abortion.)
** Some of what you cite happened before Jay's conversion, and also people are hypocrites about what they claim to believe sometimes, it happens.
* Why are some canine character's tails cropped?
** It was speculated on the Fridge Horror section for the sequel webcomic that cropped tails and ears are the equivalents of piercings.
** The more likely answer is that Naylor has never seen those breeds in their natural state and thinks that's how they actually look.
