I'm finding more and more "Going Galt" articles and blogs and columns. Here is one, titled, "Battling Obama by ‘Going Galt’," that references Helen Smith's blog.

Perhaps Greenspan "went John Galt" on us, a la Francisco?

No, Greenspan didn't steal from the looters to give to the producers, he stole from the producers to give to Fed's buddies.

Maybe I am wrong, but I had reasoned, or perhaps merely rationalized to myself,  that the Fed under Greenspan had enabled capital to sustain itself  through Mr. Greenspan's earned ability  to affix an objective value to what would have otherwise been nothing more than fiat money backed by rhetoric, pomp, and slight of hand.

Samuel, I wish.
I do find the idea that Greenspan is masterminding a "watchmen" style event in economics darkly compelling. I'm more inclined to think he's Objectivism's very own judas though.

Ryan, I am afraid you are correct.  I want you to be wrong, but you're most likely right.  I''ve been to the minor palaces of the elite, as a carpet cleaner, and the charm is most alluring.  What I have imagined of Ayn Rand's entourage, however; at least makes me hope that he was wearing a double coat of psychic latex when they seduced him.
