Ayn Rand's novel Atlas Shrugged has had some kind of revival lately. I discussed the book a while ago in a previous post. Here is a follow up on what is being said about the book in the media. People are asking is it crazy to go Galt? Roughly speaking to go Galt means to emulate a character from the book, John Galt, and his philosophy that in a corrupt and inept system those with virtue and ability should refuse to perpetuate that system. In reality I think it means rich people are refusing to pay their taxes. There is a dichotomy in Rand's followers between liberals and conservatives, so is it neoliberal or is it conservative to go Galt? And Colbert weighs in also.
