Will Atlas Shrug?

I am just finishing Atlas Shrugged. It is eerie how well Ayn Rand foretold the exact, yes the exact, scenario playing out in regards to the unyielding expansion of government at the expense of the private sector and the ensuing destruction of civilized society.

We know how this plays out. It will be much easier to stop it now than to clean up the mess later, after we emerge from a leftist imposed dark ages.

I will quote Churchill again:

"If you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."
