Five Ways Ayn Rand’s 1957 Novel
Predicted Our Present Condition

Original Article

On a recent trip to Colorado, I fired up the Atlas Shrugged audiobook. As I passed a line of train cars sitting empty and idle, noted the high gas prices, and listened to complaints about gas station supplier shortages, it occurred to me that Rand’s 1957 novel made a number of chillingly accurate predictions about our modern Wokestopia (i.e. Woke-dystopia). Like many immigrants who escaped communism, Rand knew firsthand the corrosive effect of politicizing the industries that supply and feed our economy. The central plotline of Atlas Shrugged follows the accelerating political corruption of American corporations. Rand painted a picture of a kind of corporate/leftist fascism that feels familiar

"Atlas Shrugged" was a long and somewhat difficult read. Sometimes a single paragraph spanned a page and a half. However, it was well worth it. It describes how the oligarchy works and the effect on people. There is no doubt that woke corporations pose the greatest threat to individual freedoms that this nation has ever experienced. They are not constrained by the Constitution and can exert pressure and penalties on people without consequence. Unfortunately, we no longer have a Teddy Roosevelt at the helm to bust them.

#1 is spot on. While we need another maverick in the flavor of a TR or (yes) DJT, we also need someone with great writing skills to rewrite Atlas Shrugged so today's 30 second attention public can read it in active voice. Sadly (for the lost greater good), most today would never make it through her passively written version. But this story line is too important not to be shared.

Worrisome, frightening, chilling? Perhaps 'all of the above' to one degree or another. Some - perhaps many - of our fears are being realized. Thank you for this article.

Ayn Rand pretty much hit the nail right on the head. They will take your freedoms. They will take your wealth. They will take your lives. We read about it here every day.

Atlas Shrugged is a perfect depiction of what is happening today. Rand definitely understood the communist state. Her discussion of what happens to productive people is also accurate. We will have to find another country, if the communist Democrat Party continues in power. The movie was also powerful and very well done. To fully understand the movie, it is best to have read the book, which is over a 1,000 pages, so set aside some time.

The Biden administration's current obsession with EQUITY is also a recurring theme in Atlas Shrugged that comes to mind. Everything had to have an equal outcome. It isn't fair if my company makes more money than yours because my products are superior and I work harder. Everyone needs an equal outcome no matter what. Each time I hear the news I think of another part of the book that was dead on accurate. All of the government programs in the book are passed on as being for the good of the people (like today). Producers and successful companies are portrayed as being selfish being greedy by making too much money (like today). Hard work and success is vilified (like today). It is a long read but if people read it today, their eyes would be open to what will happen if the Biden / radical Democrat agenda continues.

Atlas Shrugged was almost too painful to read, as it seemed as if every piece of it was ripped from today’s headlines.

I've read Atlas Shrugged three times, the first in the mid 70's while at NC State, and the last just a few years ago. I went on an Ayn Rand binge and reread The Fountainhead and added her first two books - We The Living (based in Russia and considered to be based on her life experience before emigrating), and Anthem, believe it or not a quick read because of the minimalist writing style, about the revolt of two characters in a dystopian collectivist society where the protagonists attempt individual expression. Given my user name it's easy to see what my position is on 'going Galt' against the woke corporate/political fascist alliance currently on the march here.

Slouching Towards Gomorrah, by Judge Robert Bork (rest his soul) is another must MUST read. I first read it when it came out, and am re-reading it now. I swear it is still completely up-to-date. His description of our broken culture then is still dead-on accurate now.

Really good article. Though I found it difficult to read the comments about this book being long and difficult to read, etc. Yes, perhaps, but unless we tackle challenging books we don't learn. This book is well worth it. I also have read it 3-4 times over the years, along with her novels and essays. One may not like her philosophy or her personality, but person can still get much out of studying her work and thinking. The left hates her, dismisses her, and ridicules her because she is an unapologetic advocate for capitalism and she knew what they were up to and exposed them.

Like #11, I've also read Atlas three times. The catchphrases used by the communists and the character archetypes might as well have been torn from news articles today, and going back several decades. And yes, the short novel Anthem is a good read; almost Atlas run in reverse order.

One cannot help but notice that Ayn Rand's predictions did not play out in the decades after the book was written. It took six decades. Why? I believe because in 1957, Americans would not have tolerated the actions of leftists politicians, the Deep State, leftist media, or the education racket. In '57, liberal democrats had yet to go full commie as during the Eisenhower administration, most hints of domestic communism would have been snuffed out, if not by government then by the people. In '57 our country's direct involvement in Vietnam, under the guise of preventing the spread of communism in SE Asia, had not reared its ugly head. Instead our homegrown communists took the long view and planted and nourished the seeds of America circa 2020. Imagine an ANTIFA or BLM in 1957. Most of the members of those armies came up during the Clinton years, educated by leftist media and communist teacher unions, and were honed and polished under Obama/Biden. The end game has yet to play out; however, we're at a tipping point and the only question is what comes next.

I admit to not having finished the book. I slogged through several chapters before giving up. Perhaps I’ll try it again. But I already have experienced the story having lived in the Socialist Republic of Romania under the Ceausescus for 3 years. Every time I see a Bernie bumper sticker or some video of a skull full of mush spouting about the glories of socialism, I want to slap the crap out of them and tell them that, if they get what they think they want, there will be no iPhones, no cars, no trendy clothing, no health care and not even much food for them. Worse, they will be enslaved for the good of The Party. It will be The Hunger Games without the games and the wealthy decadent people living in “The Capital” will be the big shots in the Communist Party. I’ve seen it and lived it all before.

I remember seeing this book in my father's headboard bookcase when I was a kid. It was such a fat book with a strong, black, gothic typeface on the spine and I had no idea what the odd title meant. Fast forward to the early 70s when I moved to a city where I didn't know anyone other than family. In the first weeks I was there, and needing something to occupy my time until I hit my stride, I bought the paperback. I had no idea that it would be the most important book I would ever read. I couldn't put it down. I've read it several times over the years. She writes in a romantic style and she does get a little purple sometimes, but in addition to being a powerful philosophical treatise, it's also a compelling story. And written a second language for her ... very impressive. Agreed that the movies weren't good, #7, but trying to make a movie out of the book was a tall order that the filmmakers weren't up to. Too bad. The National Review's review of the book at the time of publication was a complete hatchet job, written by Whittaker Chambers whose take on it revealed that he couldn't have read it. William F. Buckley admitted he never read it. NRO continues to trash Rand to this day.

Okay, I see these things happening, too, but I don't understand why the whole country has to go down in flames. There's a giant red swath in through most of this country. If in comments on the other story about Rushmore can urge Kristi Noem to defy the fed/biden on the 4th celebration, why cannot the majority of the land in the US, plus all those millions of (much better) people who voted for President Trump (twice) defy the fed? Why should we go down with the ship the leftists are sinking?

How do you raise the minimum wage without raising the minimum wage?This is a riddle that the Biden administration has solved with a set of economic policies that specialize in perverse incentives to crush small business. Chief among these policies is continuing unemployment aid to millions of Americans while job openings go unfilled.

Millions of sub-Saharan blacks seek to immigrate to America. They apparently haven’t gotten the memo that this is a wretched land of systemic anti-black racism. When they get here, they’re strangers in a strange land. English is usually not their first language. Their skin color tends to be very black, not the lighter color of American blacks who have an average of about 25% white blood in them. Despite those handicaps, they do better than American-born blacks. Compared to American-born blacks, their income is about a third higher, their poverty rates are significantly lower, their educational achievement is higher, and their marriage rate is double.
