Nov. 28, 2011 The New Yorker

Nov. 28, 2011 The New Yorker’s Mattathias Schwartz wrote “Pre-Occupied” about the Occupy Wall Street Movement in Zucotti Park. The organizers cite Saul Alinsky’s book Rules for Radicals and Linus Torvald, the creator of the Linux open operating system.

George Packer wrote “No Death No Taxes” about Silicon Valley venture capitalist Peter Thiel and libertarian futurism. “Probably the most extreme form of inequality is between people who are alive and people who are dead.” According to Packer “In Thiel’s techno-utopia, a few thousand Americans might own robot driven cars and live to a hundred and fifty, while millions of others lose their jobs to computers that are far smarter than they are, then perish at sixty.”
