Atlas Shrugged and John Galt Went To Hollywood

Watch the Official Atlas Shrugged Movie Trailer (below). Atlas Shrugged Part 1 opens in theaters April 15th, 2011. Finally! For those of you who have not read the book "Atlas Shrugged," you still have time before you see the film. The book combines a magnificent love story with author Ayn Rand's economic and political philosphy, with dashes of adventure and action thrown in to boot. Atlas Shrugged is one of the most influential books of the 20th Century. It's influence continues to grow. Why? Watch another video for a good explanation. One of the main protagonists, John Galt, is a mysterious man who moves mountains from the darkest corners. His speech is one of the high points of the book, and stands by itself as an anti-collectivist treatise. Listen to a reading of it.
