Who is John Galt?

"Whoever you are, you who are hearing me now, I am speaking to whatever living remnant is left uncorrupted within you, to the remnant of the human, to your mind, and I say: There is a morality of reason, a morality proper to man, and Man's Life is its standard of value." - John Galt, Atlas Shrugged.

Jake DeSantis is not John Galt. But he at least recognizes that a bankrupt moral code cannot exist without the consent of the victim and that the victim cannot live a life proper to man if he offers his consent: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/25/opinion/25desantis.html
