We’re moving towards the new decade, and as we check the time we see behind, new Tech looms seem to emerge. Tech leaders becoming the Super Villains is the topic of the town.
But it’s not a good thing If we look at the other side of the table. A tweet is running in my mind, and the thought of it is ruining certain images.
The first name in terms of ruining that runs in our mind are the tech leaders. Vowing to advance the future, are they ruining what all we have in our present?
Will they preserve what we have now in the name of tech? And our minds can’t stay silent since then.
And the names are
When we think of names, we can’t blame them all. There are certain people such as Satya Nadella (Microsoft), Tim Cook (Apple), Sundar Pichai (Google), Susan Wojcicki (YouTube), Jack Dorsey (Twitter) and Marc Benioff (Salesforce) who can’t be blamed.
Various allegations on the Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, He still can’t be claimed as an evil person. Even with those spins and everything, he doesn’t seem too fit to be an evil mind.
In the end, the top 3 names that click are the world’s biggest tech leaders. They seem to be bringing a revolution, but everything has another side.
Taking the market value as of now in mind, Jeff Bezos is the richest person in the world. But with all those money as well, the workers at Amazon go through horrible working conditions.
The all-time favourite business e-sport has participated in Union busting as well. Part-time employees at Amazon-owned Whole Foods had their benefits cut a little time back.
He’s showering money into his Space-based startup Blue Origin to match the level of SpaceX. Bezos has the ability to shove his money and put it right there without caring about his savings.
For once, let’s just imagine the surveillance capabilities from Alexa or Ring. Now, don’t we think of the devilish things that can happen with him taking over the watch at Alexa and Ring?
Can Bezos be any more evil? Maybe yes, maybe no. But all I know is that his dominance is increasing in our lives so much.
Through the retail portal or a prime membership or even his ownership in The Washington Post, we seem dependent on him, a lot.
Out of the three people, we all may think that Musk has the least chance to become evil. But do we know the time?
His mistakes that seem to be the least likely are union-busting, defamation claims, copyright violation and smoking weed.
But if AI takes over and time changes, we can’t blame it because he has said, “I told you so,” in terms of the newly arising technology. But we may see him dominant once AI arrives. Maybe something like BAM!
He has the power to take Teslas on the road in control. He can use SpaceX to take charge of the U.S. Space Force, the ground forces can use the Cybertruck as Tanks.
The army weapons, his flamethrowers! The Hyperloop can be used from one base station to another. All the tech made for us and benefiting us is now suddenly on the evil side.
Founder of Palantir and co-founder of PayPal, Peter Thiel is the tech leader who most likely to become evil, really evil man.
Now, do you want to know why? It’s because he has been into the various number of issues and scandals.
Let’s note all of them. Does he have relations with the U.S government in a way that they surely plan to limit free press? Yes, he does. Does he have enough money to sponsor a lot of armies of the government? Yes, he does.
Also coming to social media-based stuff, he has enough influence on the Social Media platform Facebook. He has in the past stopped Facebook from checking the truth of facts present in the Political Party ads.
He has a company that has been involved in tracking people and mining data. It has notoriously participated in all sorts of scandals just like Facebook.
Peter Thiel once quoted, “I no longer believe that freedom and democracy are compatible.” Does this proof enough that he has all intentions to stop people from attaining their right? Yes, we doubt.
Also, even if everything goes against him he can restart his life at a far escape in the other corner of the globe.
There is no certainty to say that he is definitely a supervillain, but are any proofs against this fact? No, not really.
We may not believe that in reality, all of this can happen. Times are changing, so is the tech world and also these people’s influence in our lives increases day today.
We may not be realizing but we are definitely going to suppress under their words in a while if we stay as dependent as we are on them.
