    Exercising her own individualistic, egocentric philosophy of Objectivism, Ayn Rand considered Atlas Shrugged her magnum opus. "Individuals of the mind" strike against society, refusing to share their work with the rest of the world. Stressing the primacy of private property ownership and laissez-faire capitalism, Rand argues against any kind of government intervention in the lives of individual citizens, referring to mandated "self sacrifice" as the downfall of society.
