This Is John Galt

Today is also the “anniversary” of one of the most controversial literary passages in the history of the Western world: It is the date given in Atlas Shrugged of John Galt’s speech. jpeg

In Atlas Shrugged, the hero, John Galt, makes a radio speech to the nation revealing the “strike of the producers” and explaining its rationale. The speech resolves the philosophical mystery of the plot: Why are the most productive people leaving their work and disappearing from society? (Courstesy of The Atlas Society)

John Galt’s Speech, Thanks to Amber.
