Peter Thiel on Bigger Problems than Wokeness

On 2023-05-03 Peter Thiel appeared on the Bari Weiss “Honestly” podcast to discuss why, after endorsing and supporting Donald Trump in 2016 he has increasingly stepped back from politics, why he believes technological stagnation is a greater risk than the “woke mind virus”, and the limited power of money to effect change in a culture which has ceased to believe in genuine progress. Must the choice always be between different brands of tyranny?


I’m not impressed.
