...Atlas Shrugged” by Ayn Rand, many readers would say that all the author’s main thoughts and beliefs are gathered in the Chapter 7 “This is John Galt Speaking”. This chapter can be deservingly called “a heart” of the novel. Everybody would agree that the book by Rand possesses many unique characteristics, but it is essential to consider “Atlas Shrugged” to be not only a fiction, but philosophic message that may seem not very understandable at first. It is not right to consider the novel as contrasting the “good” socialism and “bad” capitalism. This approach represents not only the simplification... of human efforts, the capital and governmental control in the sphere of economics and business...
