About the Author: Ayn Rand was born in Russia, graduated within the University of Leningrad, and in 1926 came to the United States where she was naturalized. Her initial novel, We the Living, was published in 1936. With the publication of The Fountainhead in 1943, she attained a dazzling and enduring success and her special strategy, objectivism, gained a worldwide following.

Tremendous in range, amazing in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn rand's magnum opus, which established an ideology along with a movement. With the publication of the function in 1957, Rand gained an instant following and became a phenomenon. Atlas Shrugged appeared as a premier moral apologia for Capitalism, a protection that had an electrifying impact on millions of visitors (and today listeners) who have not heard Capitalism defended in different than technical terms.


About Ayn Rand

Atlas Shrugged is a novel by Ayn Rand, initially published in 1957 in the United States. It was Rand's last function of fiction before focusing her writings only on strategy, politics and cultural criticism. At over 1 thousand pages in length, she considered it her magnum opus. The book explores a amount of philosophical themes that Rand would subsequently develop into the strategy of Objectivism.

The theme of Atlas Shrugged is the fact that independent, rational thought is the engine that powers the planet. The key conflict of the book happens as the "people of the mind" go on strike, refusing to lead their inventions, art, company leadership, scientific analysis, or modern tips of any type to the rest of the planet. Society, they believe, hampers them by interfering with their function and underpays them by confiscating the income and dignity they have rightfully earned. The peaceful cohesiveness of the planet needs those people whose effective function originates from mental effort. But feeling they have no alternative, they eventually commence disappearing within the communities of "looters" and "moochers" who bleed them dry. The strikers believe that they are important to a society that exploits them, and the near-total collapse of civilization their strike eventually triggers shows them to be correct.
Like the Greek Titan Atlas, people rationally and circumspectly looking their own long-term joy believe that they hold the planet on their shoulders. The novel's title is an allusion to the Titan, discussing what would result if those supporting the planet suddenly decided to stop doing this. In the novel, the allusion comes during a conversation between 2 protagonists, Francisco d'Anconia and Hank Rearden, close to the end of piece 2, chapter 3, where Francisco suggests to Rearden that if he can recommend to Atlas that he do something, it is to shrug.

In the planet of Atlas Shrugged, society stagnated when independent effective achievers started to be socially demonized and even punished for their accomplishments, despite that society had been more healthy and successful by permitting, encouraging and worthwhile self-reliance and individual achievement. Independence and individual joy flourished to the extent that individuals were free, and achievement was rewarded to the extent that individual ownership of private property was strictly respected. The hero, John Galt, lives a lifetime of laissez-faire capitalism as truly the only method to reside consistent with his values. Atlas Shrugged is a political book. It portrays fascism, socialism and communism – any shape of state intervention in society – as systemically and fatally flawed. But, Rand reported it is not a fundamentally political book, but that the politics portrayed in the novel are a outcome of her attempt to display her image of the perfect individual and the individual mind's position and value in society.

Rand argues that independence and individual achievement allow society to survive and thrive, and ought to be embraced. But this needs a "rational" moral code. She argues that, over time, coerced self-sacrifice causes any society to self-destruct. She is similarly dismissive of belief beyond reason, in a god or high being, or anything else as an authority over one's own notice. The book positions itself against religion particularly, frequently straight in the characters' dialogue.
