    I think Atlas should have an alternative ending option to observe if the viewing audiences prefer a less extereme ending say where John Galt was arrested and taken to the wyane falkland hotel, you can choose to see him cooperate with Mr Thompson or stay with the original if you prefer it might get more bums on seats
