John Rogers on "going Galt":
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.
I'm assuming that, when obscenely rich people yammer on about "going Galt," that would involve moving to their summer house and dismissing Carlos, the pool boy, since they're by gosh going to look after that pool by themselves now and won't that just teach that whole economy thing a harsh lesson?
