Wendy Liu liked an answer from Bud Smith:
Bud  Smith
Be crazier in your writing. Way too many writers hold back or some editor has sucked the crazy out of their work. I can always tell when a writer is pretending to be a businessman or businesswoman instead of a psychopath artist. Aspiring writers: bec See Bud’s answer.

“Creating derivative software to help brands better understand their customers seemed like a poor use of my limited time on this burning planet.”
Wendy Liu, Abolish Silicon Valley: How to Liberate Technology from Capitalism

“Our current understanding of entrepreneurship is deeply saturated in power-hungry capitalist greed, leading to undemocratic control of the technological infrastructure that underpins our lives — not to mention massively wasteful economic inequality. Whatever merits the existing system of private entrepreneurship may have had, we’re now brushing up against its limits, and it’s time to consider something new.”
Wendy Liu, Abolish Silicon Valley: How to Liberate Technology from Capitalism

“But I also believe that technology has greater potential than the mundane, profit-seeking ventures to which it has been relegated under the current system.”
Wendy Liu, Abolish Silicon Valley: How to Liberate Technology from Capitalism

“Higher taxes to bring down public debt would also put to rest the tawdry rhetoric according to which ‘we’ should not live at the expense of ‘our children’ – when the real problem is that the ‘better-off’ live at everyone else’s expense by largely avoiding the social costs involved in the upkeep of their hunting grounds.”
Wolfgang Streeck, Buying Time: The Delayed Crisis of Democratic Capitalism
