    The main take away from this article shouldn't be the Zuckerberg meeting, it should be the President fraternizing with a known accelerationist and one of the most powerful people in the country.

      Peter Thiel is also one of Reddit's largest investors.

      Here is Peter Thiel's thoughts on democracy:

      But I must confess that over the last two decades, I have changed radically on the question of how to achieve these goals. Most importantly, I no longer believe that freedom and democracy are compatible.

      Peter Thiel has been long celebrated by white nationalists and the altright for his views

      “The history of nearly every field of science and engineering was driven by white Europeans,” declares a 45-year-old computer chip designer who says he lives in Berkeley, California, and who posts under the name “White Morpheus” on the Daily Stormer. “Nobody will say their real feelings [about the alt-right] because a mob of fat blue-hair complainers will drive you away from your career forever. Peter Thiel coming out [for Trump] was a joy to us all, because he could show his support for the Trump train where we could not.”

      For those who didn't get in on the accelerationism thread earlier in the week, here is an excerpt on what it is:

      accelerationism,” ... it rests on the idea that Western governments are irreparably corrupt. As a result, the best thing white supremacists can do is accelerate their demise by sowing chaos and creating political tension

      The sowing chaos notion is particularly important when you consider Zuck's willingness to make massive profit from ad buys and traffic generated by misinformation and propaganda. I fucking hate this guy.
