RexTalionis: Wasn't the idea of "going Galt" where the "makers" go on strike?What exactly does a right wing radio host "make" besides hot air? They create nothing, they're just commentators.
Gergesa: In one sense, I am somewhat curious about those Atlas shrugged movies. I haven't seen any of them but how will they deal with last 90 pages of objectivist philosophy explanation?
HotWingConspiracy: "Libertarian tech startup"Any idea what Libertarian tech is?
LazarusLong42: Gergesa: In one sense, I am somewhat curious about those Atlas shrugged movies. I haven't seen any of them but how will they deal with last 90 pages of objectivist philosophy explanation?Presumably by having the actor monologue for an hour or so.
fuhfuhfuh: The whole "Going Galt" mentality seems to be rife with people who only produce an overdeveloped ego and unrealistic perceptions of their contributions and worth to society.
MFAWG: I'm guessing his station has a format change scheduled for midnight. That seems to be a trend in talk radio these days.
Markus5: Maybe me meant he was going to Galt, CA. Hang a right at Lodi.
Calmamity: I sincerely wish all the "makers" would go Galt. Then they would learn that they are more lucky than talented as a thousandother MBA's line up to take their place and do just as well.
theorellior: Markus5: Maybe me meant he was going to Galt, CA. Hang a right at Lodi.Stop by and see John Fogerty while you're there.
Great_Milenko: I don't think these people understand what "going galt" means.In the book, the characters slipped away from our society because it full of regular jackoffs and working stiffs (you know, looters) to form a new society full of promethean titans worthy of their gifts. They were (legitimately) the true movers and shakers of the world, real Steve Jobs'/Richard Branson types.This is a dime-a-dozen radio host publicly quitting his job to become a blogger on a site with silly "membership" requirements.

Fart_Machine: Great_Milenko: I don't think these people understand what "going galt" means.Ever notice the only people proclaiming they're "going Galt" are self-important blowhards whom no one would miss if they dropped off the face of the Earth tomorrow.
