“This morning was the perfect day to speak with my friend Stephen Goldstein about his forthcoming novel, Atlas Drugged – Ayn Rand Be Damned. It’s the story of a twisted reality in the re-name Corporate States of America, 67 years after the John Galt-led “restoration” – and we see a dystopian future that is eerily reminiscent of what’s going on today, but with an even greater divide between the 1% and the 99%, OWS encampments known as “Coopervilles” for then-President Cooper, and a Free For All system of economics that is all about the individual, everyone else be damned.”- Nicole Sandler (Read More) Atlas Drugged: Ayn Rand Be Damned! | Nicole Sandler – Radio Or Not.
“Here is the long-overdue obituary for the unbridled greed glorified by “Atlas Shrugged” and the prophet of profit. In her story, Rand let free-marketers John Galt, Dagney Taggart, and their accomplices return triumphant from their “strike” to remake the world in the image of Godless self-interest. Now, on the 67th anniversary of their revolution, try as he may, Atlas can no longer simply shrug and Galt’s successors and their dystopian creation of Free-For-All economics is about to come under attack from an enigmatic group known as the Prometheus Project.
Against the backdrop of the epic struggle between these two opposing forces, “Atlas Drugged” takes no modern-day prisoners, hurling lightning bolts of damnation at those who put profit before humanity and offering the 99% a vision for taking back the country from the 1% who currently dwell atop Mt. Olympus. This is a work of fiction. But any resemblance to actual events, locales, or persons, living or dead, is entirely intentional. The names have been changed but, hopefully, not enough to protect the guilty”. – Amazon
