Where did the future go? David Graeber and Peter Thiel debate

by Chris Zappone

“If you took away everyone’s iPhone but told them we were going to Mars, some people would be happy” – David Graeber

If you care about the shape of the future: watch this debate put on by The Baffler. I think David Graeber’s essay on the future and Neal Stephenson’s Innovation Starvation essay will mark an inflection point when Western minds began looking upward and outward again after a 35-year pause.
