Move Fast, Break Things

For years, I wanted to be you. I ran for city council (but lost). I worked at DC think tanks and as a legislative aide in Congress. I believed that public policy was the best avenue for social change. I no longer believe that. Thank you to Chairman Price for inviting me here to share why.

I met a man named Peter Thiel, who taught me it is precisely the people who want to “change the world” that should start companies instead of working for government or nonprofits. Peter brought this spirit to bear on many major public problems — and for each he created a company.

Wrangle in the Fed? PayPal.
Get to Mars? Space-X.
Combat terrorism? Palantir.
The good news is that this spirit is alive among my generation. According to the Reason-Rupe Millennial Survey, 55 percent of millennials want to start a business — and not merely for financial gain, but also to improve the world around them.

The first two examples aren't Millennial inventions. They were created by my arch-nemesis Elon Musk.
Sigmund Freud defined four parts of a psyche; the id, the ego, the superego and the stratego. The Stratego being the highest form of morality and scientific thinking.

That's a rare form of starting a discussion. try actually starting a discussion instead of slurs and insults. see how that goes.

Wouldn't it be great if everyone just woke up one day and decided to start their own small business and be self employed? I mean everyone. That would be an interesting world to live in, even if just for a moment.
