There is a scene near the end of James Manera’s “Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt?” where Galt (a slightly pudgy and scraggly Kristoffer Paloha), returning to his little secret Manhattan walkup where he stores is “Motor” in a secluded panic room, passes a hapless homeless person sleeping on the stairway. That little pass-by does highlight the moral problems with objectivism.
Without some moral ukase to respond to the homeless person's entreats sometimes, he is left to die, or perhaps be eliminated, following what the Nazis or ancient Spartans would have done. But sometimes so did Stalin and the Khmer Rouge. We also need to remember, if we allow people to live too freely off the unseen sacrifices of others, "money" loses its meaning and society becomes unstable. But true, without rewarding someone like John Galt, there's no innovation. And people become powerful wrongfully and corrupt by trying to implement "equality".
Of course, it's easier for someone like Galt to be generous, because doing so might not cost him something, and might promote his own agenda. Most of us are beholden to others in ways we don't want to admit and it's a lot more challenging to become generous, especially in personal ways, especially when people come knocking.
The torture scene does remind us that people can go into need because of the hostility of others. Galt overcomes it with Dagny's effort. Galt says that if he ever has to submit to the purposes of someone else, he will end his own life. That sounds defiant to be true, maybe offensive to some.
The idea of making electricity from the air counters the idea in NBC's "Revolution" but getting power from lightning would be interesting.
