The one thing I want for Christmas is for everyone to start getting along in our industry. It’s extraordinary to me that when people are so close in philosophy and viewpoint, and in some cases technology, they can be so far apart as people. It’s extraordinary.
You don’t see this in other industries. You don’t see in physics or biology, or cellphone manufacturing, or whatever, pick an industry, the amount of tribalism, hate, and vitriol that our industry has for each other. And as long as we’re doing that to each other, there’s no reality where we’re ever going to be able to overcome the real enemy, which is the legacy systems that hold three billion people and the human race down, destroy our environment, and divide us in ways that make us hate people we’ve never met and should never have grievances against.
That has to stop. And the only way it’s going to stop is if we get better systems that are more fair. And the only way we do that, is we have to work together. So, we’ll see, 2022 whether that’s accomplished. People will still try to divide us. Books will be published. Podcasters will say things. Reddit and Twitter will continue to pour rivers of verbal diarrhea. But it’s up to each and every one of us to transcend that, step above it, and realize that we have a finite window.
