I understand how and why the meaning of “going Galt” has changed from it’s origins... It has devolved to something more in-line with “going on strike”. Why? because it’s simply not possible for us to just “disappear” to some unknown location where everybody there understands and lives by the principles of hard work and responsibility... leaving behind a society dependent upon those who have left.
While Ann Rand was truly before her time, she was not a Christian. She was Jewish.
Maybe she got the idea of “Going Galt” from the bible?
You know... where all of a sudden millions of Christians suddenly disappear from the face of the earth resulting in utter chaos?
Maybe she was a Christian... I don’t know... but her solution to Society’s ills sure sounds a lot like a fictitious take on the rapture to me.
She was an atheist.
I think “Going Galt” might have been an option when the western frontier was still open but not since.
