Are you ready for the farce?

A nice sounding rant, but said by someone who plagiarized the very first line of that book from "The Driver", and used it throughout the book - who is Henry M Galt in the original.

It's completely necessary to understanding the story. The Driver takes it's line from how Henry Galt, the hero of the book, and ultimately refers to the boardroom where Galt runs his train company - it's about MUTUAL interest - the driver.

Atlas Shrugged is about selfish interest. Yeah, Rand did it on purpose. Stealing a line from someone is SELFISH interest if not GOOD interest. And it isn't MUTUAL interest like in the original book. If you don't have MUTUAL interest, you get a world dying like in Atlas Shrugged, instead of a even his enemies respected him ending like The Driver.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
