Re: It's getting "Atlas Shrugged" out here ya'll...
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.

Too bad a Miss Taggart doesn’t exist in our world

And neither does a John Galt

Working on a phd in computational field theory, so perhaps one day I can rise to the occasion

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.

It is actually anti atlas shrugged. The collapse is because the government and the corporation and the banking systems partnered to swindle everything America was built on and the carcass has been stripped bare. You are seeing end stage now.

An unrestrained fascist-capitalist system is just as bad as a Marxist system - they both suck and the end result is the same. How'd 1929 work out, was that kicked off by a bunch of Marxists?

John Galt hasn't thrown his hands up out of frustration, he has thrown them up because the dollar is toast and there is nothing left to feast on and he needs to find new markets (#1 CHINA).
