yes, he's an engineer who resides in a gulch somewhere in Colorado, along with his comrade, Midas Mulligan, a banking tycoon, among others.

Reason why I asked was because I saw a player with that name here on Sparta, then later I was driving down California Street in San Francisco and saw a car with the license plate with the very same name. Coincidence?

John Galt is a character in Ayn Rand's novel Atlas Shrugged (1957). Although he is not identified by name until the last third of the novel, he is the object of its often-repeated question "Who is John Galt?" and of the quest to discover the answer.

As the plot unfolds, Galt is acknowledged to be a philosopher and inventor; he believes in the power and glory of the human mind, and the right of the individual to use their mind solely for themselves. He serves as a highly individualistic counterpoint to the collectivist social and economic structure depicted in the novel, in which society is based on oppressive bureaucratic functionaries and a culture that embraces mediocrity in the name of egalitarianism, which the novel posits is the end result of collectivist philosophy.



I seem to remember a player here in Sparta with the city name "Atlas Shrugged"-can't remember who it was or what coalition.


Senility has set in.

 Sadly, that point is validated repeatedly in modern and historical society.  Outside of a few outliers in very small tribal or highly subsidized communities, this has proven time and time again to be the true end point of collectivist-egalitarian philosophy, in real practice.
