I just watched parts one and two of "Atlas Shrugged" this week, and it was amazing how much the things taking place resemble modern day America. The politicians today are as corrupt as those in the movies. The attempt to control everyone's behavior through numerous government regulations are the same today as they were in the story. The only difference I see is that they had gone a little further than we have, but not all that much, and I could see things snowballing out of control to where we are in the exact condition as those in the movies. If you haven't seen "Atlas Shrugged," it is on Netflix through Saturday, if you pay for that service. You should have more time to watch the second part, and I understand there is a third movie in the series coming out this month. I had heard a lot about this story for a long time, and was interested in it, but thought it might be boring. The movies were very interesting, well worth watching. They are rated PG-13, and there was a little bit of adult content and a couple of bad words here and there, but it was a mild PG-13 based on a comparison to other movies I have seen. I would have probably given them a PG. If you have seen "Atlas Shrugged" I would be interested in your thoughts about it.
Who is John Galt?
