Free To Be... Straight White Males
And TED-style libertarian techno-futurism is, finally, intensely dehumanizing, to me. Because the world humans live in is a world of power and influence. That is: of human bias and pettiness and ugliness and smallness and so on. When you lose that context—all of it, all the various kinds of privilege and reflexive privilege-denial—you are not talking about things as they are. You're talking about "killer apps" or "innovation," to and for rich people. The future won't look like that. It won't care about it. It shouldn't.
