The book explores an oppressed United States where leading innovators, ranging from industrialists to artists, refuse to be exploited by society. A protagonist Dagny Taggart, sees society collapse around her as the government increasingly asserts control over all industry, as it is slowly occuring here to date, while society's most productive citizens, led by the mysterious John Galt, progressively disappear, withdrawing the "individual thought" that drives society's growth and productivity. A world in which the individual is not free to create is doomed, that civilization cannot exist where men are slave to society and government, and that the destruction of a profit economy leads to the collapse of society.
From all the reviews I have read and heard, it’s an outstanding film and one that coincides with our current administration.
Will Obama and the left go see this movie?
Who IS John Galt?
