We are living in a true golden age of hubristic corporate overlords though.

The hubris comes largely from assuming expertise on one field carries over into another. That programming or engineering expertise carries over into social engineering expertise

I remain committed to the faith of my teenage years: to authentic human freedom as a precondition for the highest good. I stand against confiscatory taxes, totalitarian collectives, and the ideology of the inevitability of the death of every individual. For all these reasons, I still call myself “libertarian.”

The fate of our world may depend on the effort of a single person who builds or propagates the machinery of freedom that makes the world safe for capitalism.

Alexander Bogdanov did this, apparently. He was the guy behind proletkult, but I forget the exact historical situation. Anyway he was this avant-garde communist scientist. Hematology, systems theory (believe he called it tektology).

Anyway I think he died due to complications involving blood transfusion. McKenzie Wark is a popularizer of his.
