My dear,

We wanted children who could think for themselves, instead we got worker drones. We wanted a society that championed hard work and dedication, instead we got prize show contestants and lottery winners on the front of our magazines. We wanted our media to cater to the highest self the people could reach morally, instead we got Jerry Springer and WorldStarHipHop.

We wanted flying cars, instead we got 140 characters.

Things have to change, and they have to change now. I’m going to take the responsibility of saying that where the world is today is my fault, but if I work hard so is where the world will be tomorrow.

I will take responsibility, will you?

Falsely yours,
Peter Andreas Thiel
