Peter Thiel on the stall of progress

Rarely do I read the interviews of Valley guys (commonly interchangeable pricks in short-shorts) but I was passed this one for japes by a mutual to post about and I do like the conspiracy theory that he’s NRx. That’d make sense, is all I’m saying.

As to why progress stalled, he says he is less certain. But if pressed it becomes apparent that he has plenty of theories. In one succinct formulation, he puts it this way: “We landed on the moon in July 1969 and Woodstock started three weeks later. With the benefit of hindsight, that’s when the hippies won and somehow progress sort of died, the idea of progress came to an end.”

As Boomers came of age.

What a stonking coincidence…

Yeah, he knows.

A theme that could be applied to this blog: smug

We see you, Peter. We see you and we love you.

1. Be civil. 2. Be logical or fair. 3. Do not bore me.
