Some background, and a teaser:
The college kid says "Going John Galt isn't really essentially a political or economic sort of strike, it's a moral strike, rejecting the moral code of altruism, and accepting and spreading the morality that Ayn Rand puts forth which is rational selfishness." His plan is "following Ayn Rand's morality as much as I can and spreading her philosophy as far as can." So he's not going John Galt so much as going Dorkus Malorkus. Dr. Smith is thrilled, because all the other kids seem to be into Obama; what is so different about him? "I take ideas seriously," he asserts. "I take morality seriously, I think that philosophy moves the world and I can grasp things with my mind and that if I want to change things I can pursuade people." Dr. Mrs. says maybe his classmates "don't have as developed critical thinking skills"; the kid snickers. Someday he will show them all.
