Shrugging it off

Those of us, who consider ourselves libertarians and understand the warning predicted by Ayn Rand throughout her book Atlas Shrugged, hoped that we would not see the day that her ugly fictional world would become truth. Unfortunately it is now here.

Have you ever heard of a book called The Secret of the League, by a man named Ernest Bramah? It was published in 1907, and along with Garet Garrett's The Driver (whose main character is a mysterious and capable fellow named Henry Galt), it's the obvious prototype of Atlas Shrugged, a fact which Ayn Rand could never quite bring herself to acknowledge, unfortunately.

Here, if you're interested, is a brief review of The Secret of the League.

And if I'm not mistaken, you can read The Driver in its entirety here.
