Disagree on him on anything and before you know it, you are either a fool or a wicked feudalist (and he knows zero history about the Middle Ages and what Feudalism was, but that does not stop him from pontificating. Offer him data that does not agree with his theories, and you are ranting and a sicko.

Much worse, in my foolishness I once quoted Alexander Solzhenytsin to him. Because Solzhenytsin did not agree with him about Democracy then he was a Wicked Feudalist and deserved no respect. The idea that the Gulag was NOT the best place to learn Political Science did not penetrate him, and the realization that the only experience Russia had with democracy had proved very fragile and run over by the bolsheviqs – and the might prefer a more robust system did not count. Solzhentysin did not worship Brin’s idols so he must be anathema.

Boy, I am glad that he cannot found a religion, or we’d all find ourselves at the stake..

If you get to say, 25, without ever having to compete. What makes you think you will be able to do so? That isn’t fair, it’s regressive.

It’s also a shame that he doesn’t understand reality. I’m surprised no one noticed the reasoning he believes this is possible in the long run though. He thinks we can simply pick up ‘God’s’ tools and become co-creators. I guess only people with such enlightened understanding and vision, such as Brin, can comprehend the possibilities of this though.

My favorite part is how much he loved speaking in latin, it gave him such pleasure to bask in himself. The only reason he wants watchmen is so that some one will watch him and the only reason he would advocate for private property in the slightest is to keep his mirror.

I am really, really, ticked that reason was up his butt and not lighting a fire under it. One less site to view.
