Seemed kind of funny. I finally made a profile on the forum after a few years of lurking, then a week later it crashes...But I'm back again to lurk less and have fun.

A post like that begs the question: Who IS John Galt?  (That's a literary inside joke for those who recall what happened when Atlas shrugged off his responsibility for carrying the Earth on his shoulders.)

After so many years of writing long works of fiction no one ever reads (AKA engineering technical reference manuals) it's a nice change to get back to telling stories at least a handful of discerning readers around the world might enjoy.

Ah, Someone that has read Ayn Rand's works. She was a Russian immigrant after the communist revolution. Atlas Shrugged: 1,000+ pages of dense language and difficult reading. Did you read Fountain head the novel that proceeded Atlas Shrugged? That one was made into a movie with Patricia O'Neil

I though it would be a good penname for a while when proclaiming conservative view points.
 
Answer from the book: We are John Galt. We who believe in capitalisms and free enterprise.

The Fountainhead, 1940, with Ayn Rand herself in the studio coaching Gary Cooper on the portrayal of the main character.  If it wasn't so politically incorrect it would be a famous classic.  Raymond Massey, playing a tragic but ultimately redeemed tyrant demonstrates why he was one of the greatest dramatic actors of the 20th century.  The 3-part Atlas Shrugged movie wasn't that bad considering the conditions under which it was produced but suffered from being far too politically incorrect as well, being practically career poison to anyone participating in it.

In a nutshell Ayn Rand advocated the proposition that people are not equally talented in all respects.  Some are born leaders who dominate their chosen path, some prefer to submit to those leaders.  Sounds vaguely familiar to certain alternative lifestyles.  Obviously a philosophy based in inequality of ability isn't going to be very popular with the socialist segment of society.  After all, as George Orwell put it, "we are all equal, but some are more equal than others."  (From Animal Farm, yet another animated film that suffered the same fate as the Fountainhead.)

For any dominant-leaning personality type Ayn Rand ought to be required reading.  Can't make it through the books then at least find a copy of The Fountainhead movie.  The soliloquy at the trial scene sums it all up.   Self confidence, the certainty in holding true to convictions, an unstoppable determination to have one's own way, they are all essentials in earning the trust and respect of those who seek out the strong leader.

The Atlas Shrugged Movie suffered from being dated. Trains are not a dominate commercial enterprise the were in the 1935. I applauded the movie's political incorrectness. It truly amazing how much Ayan Rand's books and 1984 so well describe modern America.
