It really is amazing how these guys delude themselves into thinking they’re geniuses for having money and regurgitating the same tired rhetoric for decades on end. Then of course, they’ll be defended and jacked off by hordes of wannabes chasing after that same wealth and status whenever they’re criticized. Because contrary to what he said in that tweet, you can still be an insecure loser even if you’re rich and materially successful.

His whole essay is disgusting but those parts where he says he feels like a hunted animal and tries to trivialize poverty while vaguely saying it should be “attacked” or “prevented” — but not at the expense of him or his silicon valley buddies, of course — are absolutely heinous.
