I have documented here before the numerous parallels between the Obama presidency and Ayn Rand’s magnum opus. I am please to acknowledge that as the Obama presidency draws to a pathetic close, so do the final pages of Atlas Shrugged. The American economy has bottomed out and there is a void left by the disgraced socialists who are leaving power. John Galt & Co., who resemble Trump’s incoming cabinet in so many awesome ways, are preparing to leave their hideaway in the Colorado mountains and return to society to rebuild the economy.
Oh, and the socialist despots in Atlas Shrugged faithfully follow the three laws of social justice warriors. They lie, they double-down on their lies, and they project relentlessly.
