What an incredibly naïve movie/book by Rand. The theme? The elite/rich get richer and ignore everyone below them. Too bad. No help for anyone. The rich can squander their wealth as they wish, earning their wealth on the backs of those below them whom they are willing to pay a pittance for their services. And the government, just do away with it and its intrusive regulations to keep the environment air/water clean, no interferences with whatever the wealthy choose to do, including the financial institutions. The depiction of the government was incredibly childish. Yes, maybe in the old USSR or China, but not here, or let's hope not. The part with the arrest and torture of the great John Galt was incredibly stupid, but Stalinistic per Ayn Rand's silly characterization.
The ironic thing is the today's republicans buy into this Rand nonsense. They milk the gov't with their tax breaks for the rich while making our institutions meaningless and stripping all regulations that hinder the rich from accumulating more riches while attacking those with less by cutting any aid they might be getting to pay for their tax breaks. Try Paul Ryan, Donald Trump, ad nauseum in his cabinet, et.al.
