Skip to comments.John Galt Sign Sighting in New Hampshire - Vanity
Posted on 07/25/2011 2:52:47 PM PDT by Poser
While riding my motorcycle near Lake Winnipesaukee in Meredith, New Hampshire the other day, I passed an arcade center named Funspot. It is a very large enclosed building with arcade games, bowling, mini-golf and other games. The electronic sign out front advertised the games, upcoming events, etc.
The following message flashed for a brief time:
ATLAS HAS SHRUGGED immediately followed by: WHO IS JOHN GALT??
A web search indicated it has been doing that occasionally for quite some time, but it's the first time I've seen it.
Note: The link is for the Funspot web page only.
May I just say...ever so ironically...God bless Ayn Rand.
I think she would hate you for saying that.
I’ll bet you’re right...LOL
For twelve years, you have been asking: Who is John Galt? This is John Galt speaking. I am the man who loves his life. I am the man who does not sacrifice his love or his values. I am the man who has deprived you of victims and thus has destroyed your world, and if you wish to know why you are perishing-you who dread knowledge-I am the man who will now tell you. The chief engineer was the only one able to move; he ran to a television set and struggled frantically with its dials. But the screen remained empty; the speaker had not chosen to be seen. Only his voice filled the airways of the country-of the world, thought the chief engineer-sounding as if he were speaking here, in this room, not to a group, but to one man; it was not the tone of addressing a meeting, but the tone of addressing a mind.
2 minute speech
Full Speech. About 5 minutes each:
And -- again ironically -- Ayn probably wouldn't have minded a bit.
Thanks for posting it.
