Did Rand Copy the Plot of Atlas Shrugged?

Near as I can tell, the Hasidic story of the "Master of Prayer" is the exact opposite of Atlas Shrugged. A mirror image. It's hard to believe Rand created such a perfect opposite by accident. Is it possible she heard the Master of Prayer story as a child? Perhaps her rejection of it was the thing that got her started on the road that led to Objectivism.
even Rev. Jim Jones and Guiana. Many cases of men drawn to causes by a charismatic leader. Nothing new there.
Just my opinion.
