This is a lot worse than Enron. Enron actually had a product. A stupid one, but a product nonetheless. Theranos had f***ing nothing. And as far as I can tell a much worse corporate culture.

MSM doesn't care as much about this story because Theranos wasn't public, so the only people who lost money on it were rich silicon valley private equity investors.

Wow that IS way better than Enron. Business schools should study her.

An interesting view on the political pendulum from David Friedman:

This is close to my Rice Christian theory of political cycles. If the right is politically dominant, there are self-interested reasons for being on the right, so the average ideological quality of the right goes down. Only people who really believe in the left will be on the left, so their quality goes up. In addition, people on the left have lots of opportunities to hone their arguments against the right, people on the right fewer the other way, and people on the left who are not good at defending their position find their situation uncomfortable and drop out.

The result is a world where the intellectual quality and ideological purity of the left are higher than of the right, which eventually makes public views swing left, at which point the process reverses.

That is not consistent with the decreasing ideological purity across the board. The political cycle is more like a tide that rises and lowers, steadily eroding everything it touches. The "losing" side doesn't cope by strengthening ideology and improving their arguments - instead they further compromise ideology and take on increasingly impulsive and emotional arguments to try to take back dominance. And when it works, that weakened ideology crystallizes as the new normal.

Ideological purity and intellectual arguments ALWAYS require massive and intentional effort and energy inserted into the system. It never shows up naturally or memetically. That's why strong ideologies are always counterculture. If you try to find comfort in the backswing of the pendulum like this guy, you will inevitably get dragged out to sea and drown.

There's this one porn vid that's filmed in the style of those nerdy libertarian roadside handheld videos where they are defending themselves against cops and asserting their rights and such, it's soooo damn good
