That’s Right Nate

Thoughts from a right thinker.

Going John Galt

with 3 comments

As you know, I don’t really have time to read.  However, one of the greatest books ever written was Ann Rand’s Atlas Shrugged. The novel’s hero John Galt leads a secret strike of the most productive citizens in an America where productivity and freedom is no longer valued.  The strike is an act of rebellion and self-preservation, fueled by Galt’s crucial insight that their enemies’ only weapons are the ones the strikers produce for them.  By recruiting more and more strikers, Galt precipitates the ultimate collapse of American society.  Somebody really ought to make a movie out of this.

Anyway,  my website is joining a movement that is currently growing by leaps and bounds to unite those of us who make over $250,000 per year to “go John Galt”.  Sure, teachers, policemen, firemen, and and even most doctors make less than $250,000 per year, but without the rest of us what kind of life would those people have?   Who will manage the hedge funds?  Who will make the important management decisions?  Who will own and operate the good self-storage businesses?  When the wealthy people of the world refuse to work like dogs for their meager compensations those unproductive people will regret it.

Citibank gets it.  Bank of America gets it.  They haven’t let tough financial times and requiring the government to bail them out to prevent them from standing up to the unproductives.  They have both been hosting phone calls to rally support against the Employee Free Choice Act.  For you gentle readers who have missed it, The EFCA is a piece of communist legislation designed to make it easier for lazy employees to “stick it to the man” by organizing unions.  If company’s who are barely getting by with massive taxpayer support can spend the time and money to say “no more free lunch!”  isn’t that the least we can do?

  1. Uh, Nate? Just like at the Great Lakes Self Storage Association Rap-Down of 2006 you have to watch out for the competition. I’m afraid if you were to go on strike the Amish Self Storage folks in Nappanee, Indiana, will kick your butt again.

  2. Nobody wants to drive all the way out there to store their old couch.

  3. Think about it Nate. If you are on strike, your customers will have no choice but to drive to Indiana for their self-storage needs. The Amish will make a killing.
