Nice opinion piece by one of the titans of the tech world:
Yes, I’ve started writing about politics again, and the cynics are weighing in also, as usual. Don’t you know it’s all theater, and there’s no difference between the candidates. The world is run by a few rich people, and they don’t care what we think.
My answer is this — bullshit. That’s not the way it works. You wish it worked that well, but it’s actually chaotic, nonsensical, Dilbertesque, crazy, dysfunctional, self-destructive, suicidal, nutso, etc. Can you think of any more adjectives for we, as a species, net-net, have lost our minds? Go ahead and add them.
