Atlas Shrugged -The Novel


If you haven't read Ayn Rands novel, Atlas Shrugged, now is the time to do so. It predicted the same type of socialist situation that our country is being plunged into. According to the Atlas Society:
Atlas Shrugged is a complex thriller that dramatizes Ayn Rand’s philosophy of "reason, individualism, and capitalism." Set in near-future America, the novel portrays business producers as moral heroes who are being exploited by a society of parasites. It depicts a nation whose economy is collapsing as dictatorial government power grows—while the country's leading innovators and industrialists are inexplicably disappearing. Beautiful, brilliant railroad executive Dagny Taggart is on a desperate quest to save her company—but first must solve the mystery behind the enigmatic question, "Who is John Galt?"

We are all John Galt. What are our options? I have written to Congress and am awaiting some answers. I really don't expect more than smoke and BS.
