This one from Scripting News:
I don’t really think there are any of those great people, btw. I’ve traveled in some pretty high circles, I’ve met Bill Gates and a couple of Nobel laureates. I’ve been to Davos, and been part of an IPO. I’m on John Brockman’s Edge list. Big fucking deal. All these people who are so great aren’t really that much greater than the average schmuck on the subway. There really isn’t that much range in the smartness or fitness of human beings. We all have about the same lifespan, have the same experiences, birth, childhood, puberty, etc. To think there are some people that are so much better than the rest of us, well, I wouldn’t trust that so much.
The truth is we’re way out on a limb. If you want to go back to the point where we decided to be socialist and try to undo it, you’re going to have to kill most of the people on the planet who depend on the current system for sustenance. And like it or not, that probably includes you. Itcertainly includes most of the idiots running around preaching Ayn Rand these days.
