Who is John Galt? I have no idea. I see this pop up from time to time. It's some kinda inside joke. Could you please explain it to me, and others who didn't attend the party where the joke originated.

Who is John Galt?
.........is a phrase popularized in ATLAS SHRUGGED by Ayn Rand. She put it in the mouths of the characters in the book to indicate their resignation to 'the-inevitable' and their giving up on trying to fight the forces in society working against them.
Little do they know that John Galt is actually a living human being who "Shrugs".
Read the book. Most people on this site have.
