Ha ha Good one :)

John Galt is a fictional character in Ayn Rand's novel Atlas Shrugged!. Although he is absent from much of the text, he is the subject of the novel's oft repeated question, "Who is John Galt!?", and the quest to discover the answer!.

As the plot unfolds, Galt is acknowledged to be a creator and inventor who embodies the power of the individual!. He serves as a counterpoint to the social and economic structure depicted in the novel!. The depiction portrays a society based on oppressive bureaucratic functionaries and a culture that embraces the stifling mediocrity and egalitarianism of socialistic idealism!. He is a metaphorical Atlas of Greek mythology, holding up the world!.

An engineer by trade, Galt's actions include withdrawing his talents, "stopping the motor of the world," and leading the "strikers" (in this case the captains of industry) against the "looters" (in this case the mob rule of strikers and the common man)!. The storyline unfolds by exploring rumors and legends about the identity of Galt!. Galt's actual identity is learned only after a prolonged search by Dagny Taggart, the heroine of the story, with whom Galt has a romantic relationship!. Galt is also referred to in the story as the Mystery Worker!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
