"We will use a blend of film, graphics and discussion to explore the insights revealed in this masterful work". If you are a fan of Ayn Rand you will feel right at home. If you have challenges with her positions, come with an open mind and explore the possibilities. I have permission of Atlas Shrugged International to use their resources as catalysts.
Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand’s last novel, is a dramatization of her unique vision of existence and of man’s highest potential. Twelve years in the writing, it is her masterwork.
Is the pursuit of profit a noble enterprise or the root of all evil? Is sexual passion an exalted spiritual virtue or a dirty, animalistic vice? Is reason an absolute or is faith an alternative source of truth? Is self-esteem possible or are we consigned to a life of self-doubt and guilt? In what kind of society can an individual prosper, and in what kind of society is he doomed to the opposite fate?
Rand’s worldview emerges in the compelling plot turns of a mystery story, centered on the question “Who is John Galt?”
Below you will find 3 links. The first is the full 3 hour John Galt Speech, the second is the entire audio version of the unabridged book and the third is a short video of how the theme is showing up in todays world.
