20200427M Day 118: Who Is John Galt?

A random car in Santa Cruz, CA with the question “Who is John Galt?” – April 27, 2020

I was walking around the neighborhood and noticed this car with the question “Who is John Galt?”. John Galt is a character in Ayn Rand’s novel, Atlas Shrugged, a book I read in college. The novel is about a dystopian parallel reality in which the United States is experiencing widespread shortages and is falling into economic collapse due to increasing regulations and control of companies. As I surf out of this pandemic wormhole, I sense universes in which our increasing governmental control of business is due to other reasons besides a pandemic. It’s easy to sense these universes by noticing the increasing calls and rallies to reopen America, which is a reaction to these nearby dystopian universes in which everything is controlled by a strong, central government. I think I’ll keep surfing through this wormhole and not get out just yet. The normality I’m seeking is not yet recognizable.

  1. I always thought John Galt was a 19th century Scottish novelist who had a Canadian town named after him. Shows that you can’t believe what they teach you in school. Or maybe you can.
