You are partially correct. Fetishization of either technology leaders or their organizations (I’m boy sure which is worse) retards full scientific innovation. It has allowed us to create a new, understandable class of tribal shamans who’s wisdom is sacred and whose vestments foster fashion statements. Not surprisingly their level of innovation quickly falls into the comfortable world of stockholder return maximization. Liberation is no longer acceptable. The pretense is maintained. The problem is not all attributable to us Olds. Millennials can’t seem to get handle on liberation either. And you are our main, increasingly forlorn hope. . .
