About this product
- DescriptionWho is John Galt? This famous rhetorical question rings through Ayn Rand's best-selling vel as the people's anthem of despair in depressed ecomic times. Set in the future, the vel follows capitalist magnates as they battle looters, strikers, and the impending ruin of the United States' ecomy. The romantic and intellectual relationship between Dagny Taggart, the heroine, and John Galt, whose identity as the leader of the strike is eventually revealed, carries the vel to its climax. This vel, controversial when it first appeared in 1957, purports Rand's objectivist philosophy that the individual is free to pursue his or her own happiness without bowing to God or society. Objectivism in action upholds full laissez-faire capitalism as the only philosophy that can protect humankind's freedom to think, to be inventive, and to live productively.
