Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to David Sacks (former PayPal COO, co-host of the All In Podcast, angel investor in Facebook, Uber & SpaceX and founder, of Craft Ventures) about how Silicon Valley got enveloped by woke culture, why Big tech targeted Parler and the catastrophe that has resulted from lockdowns pushed by the global elite.
First David discusses how he met entrepreneur Peter Thiel at Stanford University and how he was brought on to be the COO at the then tech startup PayPal. He describes the early signs of critical theory and woke culture that led him and Peter Thiel to write the Diversity Myth in 1998. He shares how Silicon Valley culture took a turn towards big tech censorship and cancel culture after the election of Donald Trump. After the media blamed Facebook fake news and social media disinformation for electing Trump, Big Tech changed course. David talks about how Big Tech has become a cartel. He describes how Jack Dorsey didn’t realize what the side effects of banning Donald Trump from Twitter, would be. While the tech giants may not have been guilty of collusion, their signaling to each other may have violated antitrust laws. David shares his thoughts on if Big Tech monopoly should be broken up as well as why he thinks that repealing section 230 could hurt small tech innovators. He also explains the history of section 230 and why it is vital to encourage innovation in technology.
David also describes why Parler was unfairly blamed for the storming the capitol. He reveals the new information from the FBI that reveals that Facebook had 10 times the amount of planning on it’s platform for the Capitol riot. He also gives his take on the social media purge that followed and why we should all be afraid of the amount of power the Big Tech giants have over the public square. David discusses the main lessons we should learn from the failed lockdowns and recommendations from experts like Dr. Fauci and the CDC. He discusses Anthony Fauci recommending that people still wear masks and not travel even after receiving the COVID vaccine. These mixed signals may result in less people getting the coronavirus vaccine if they think that their lives won’t return to normalcy. He also shares how the COVID crisis has been exploited by teachers unions and corrupt politicians like Gavin Newsom.
