"Atlas Shrugged" is a novel by Ayn Rand that explores themes of individualism, capitalism, and objectivism. Set in a dystopian future, it depicts a world where society is crumbling due to excessive government intervention and the suppression of individual achievement. The story follows the struggles of various characters, particularly Dagny Taggart and Hank Rearden, as they resist societal decay and fight to preserve their own values and freedom. The title refers to the idea that productive and innovative individuals, symbolized by the mythical figure Atlas, are metaphorically "shrugging off" the burdens imposed by society and withdrawing their support. The novel champions the importance of rational self-interest, personal ambition, and the pursuit of excellence in a free-market system.
