It's getting "Atlas Shrugged" out here ya'll...
I have been noticing since the election, it's starting to unravel at a more rapid pace.
It's the little things, just like in the book. Look around, you'll see what i mean.

The push bar on the post office door has been broken for 7 weeks now. I asked them if i could put the bolt back in, they said no, the maintenance guy will fix it it sometime.

There are weeds growing through the cracks in the sidewalks downtown...nobody cares, nobody sprays or pulls them out.

I pulled into Walmart yesterday and chickens-yes chickens- were roaming around the parking lot like i was in Guatemala.

The County doesn't fix potholes in the roads any more.

The City park still hasn't been mowed.


And when you say "who is John Galt", nobody has a clue what you're talking about.
Where you come from is gone.
Where you thought you were going to, Wernt never there.
And where you are ain't no good, unless you can get away from it

Yea it's like everyone everywhere just stopped giving a crap.

Quality everywhere is down. No importance about anything.

And does it seem like life is running with a skeleton crew?

Short staffed everywhere.


It's bizarre. It's like life and the world is phoning it in. Almost on autopilot.

It all feels empty and off

yep, unfortunately Idiocracy is winning!

FYI OP: Atlas Shrugged isn't about not caring, it is about withdrawing consent.

What we are seeing is a degradation and destruction of society per the Communist protocols.

And neither does a John Galt

Rural mail is becoming 50/50 if anything valuable arrives, between the post office employees and the tweeking locals

Post office no longer has any running lights outside the building at night and is being broken into semi-regularly since Christmas Eve

My house has never been cleaner, yard never more maintained, car never more tuned up and polished. I take care of my own stuff and help others that are close to me.

But I see the lethargic attitudes daily. These do-nothing assholes roaming around looking at their phones with no place to be and nothing to do.

Shit man..I'm thinking of going GALT now.

I get it. the left demonized Aynn Rand awhile back. Our youth know nothing of her. They have been indoctrinated in communist literature. I saw it first hand and thought little of it until things have now unfolded as they have.

The Atlanta airport is exactly what you are saying. Many food shops closed. Starbucks and five guys and so many more were closed. Even the coke and other vending machines were mostly empty. Is this America???

Is this the lack of workers or the free money keeping the workers unmotivated??

I don't know if it's people "going fault" of their own volition as the book shows...I think many are retiring and dropping out of the work force not on principle, but because Bidet at all make it more profitable to stay home and collect stimmy and stuff the landlord month after month.

So...your assessment that things are going Galt is way to complimentary and implies people have a moral compass...they don't.

All we are witnessing right now is the effects of living under fascist/oligarchical totalitarianism.

If only Galt's Gulch were taking shape somewhere.

It may be, but the broken post office door and roaming chickens seem more like business as usual statist decline.
