I greatly appreciate efforts of millions of hard-working down-to-earth American software engineers from Silicon Valley and elsewhere in the US who, with sweat of their brow, built backbone of world digital revolution in all fields of engineering. However, with heavy heart I must say that, as it has been clear for a while to everyone, except for bloated media gurus, and their sedated, gluttonous former revolutionary prophets of new digital age, that Silicon Valley has become serious or fatal impediment to further development of digital technology and software engineering. Similarly useless have become their ill-conceived, insane ideas of fake novelty, which only purpose nowadays is to obstruct, sleaze, slime, hype and expel odorous gases of their inventors’ digestive track before spatter us with their next creative destruction diarrhea.
Many feeble-minded college dropout Silicon Valley billionaires, hailed as brilliant entrepreneurs by M.S.M. propaganda, and financed by speculative capital, publicly indulge themselves into pure madness of absolute disruption, conceived by their brains under altered states of consciousness resulted from overdose on greed and self-aggrandizement. These false disciples of “God of Progress” self-entrapped in their glass palaces of hallucinations, while promising brave new world of utopia for betterment of humanity, will not hesitate to blast population back to dark ages .
Almost nobody noticed that all those half insane pseudo-leaders of Silicon Neverland, many years ago abandoned idea of any genuine R&D here in the USA or even reasonable, long-term business development and gave up on sound business planning based of social demand and operational profit, for hype and narcissistic overtures of their paid disciples.
These patriots, on the wave of QE+ and deliberate economic policies of US government, completely gave up idea of making money from their businesses old ways, by earning it. Instead they became all producers of stocks, corporate bonds and other financial instruments for profit. De facto becoming Wall Street businesses of financial manipulation, pretending to be hi-tech companies. Buying back their worthless stocks nobody wants with borrowed money, while collapsing capital expenditures, critical for new, high paid engineering job formation, is a proof of their secret self-cannibalization and their utter fiduciary failure in their shareholder duties. But what’s worst, is that they openly express downright disdain for working people and mainstream economy in the US. Imagine that in 50-ies such behavior would have been considered as anti-American but now they are hailed as national heroes of entrepreneurship, pride and joy of government and uninformed, hypnotized by trinkets populace.
Many “Gods of Silicon Valley” became bankers (like Apple Inc, fourth biggest bank by cash holdings) or investors at large (Google Inc., Facebook Inc., etc.), perhaps even speculating on balloons, cocoa, malaria nets, or worthless, teenage run, Ponzi start-ups prophesizing second coming from parents basement while their user base collapses all over the world. All this, whereas admittedly committing slew of securities crimes as well as violations of anti-trust laws practically with impunity.
In face of these disturbing facts, one can only reach only one shocking conclusion that old SILICON VALLEY, driven by cold war science, engineering excellence and innovation of 50-ties and 60-ties is DEAD and already stinks to heavens but not buried yet, to delight of hungry crowd of insane techie necrophiliacs and cheer-leading brain-dead media. Do you smell it? Or it just me.
