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

“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.
