    According to Wikepedia John Galt is a fiction character in the book “Atlas Shrugged” by Ann Rand. The expression itself was used frequently throughout the book. “The book’s opening line “Who is John Galt?” becomes an expression of helplessness and despair at the current state of the novel’s fictionalized world. Dagny Taggart hears a number of legends of Galt before finding the real John Galt and eventually joins his cause, and learning that all of the stories have an element of truth to them.” More information about the book can be found below.

    Additionally, John Galt was a representation of Ayn Rand’s philosophy.  Even though he is only mentioned in the majority of the book, his ideas and identity  are a driving factor in the plot.  John Galt is a stepping stone for Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism–through him she is able to put into words her very own ideas of life human nature.
