Silicon Valley has been reaching its tentacles into San Francisco for some time now, just as the suburban tech companies of Puget Sound—Microsoft, Amazon, and now Google and Facebook too—infiltrated Seattle. But the scale of the San Francisco infestation is far greater.
As soon as I see an article about Silly Valley and San Francisco that includes words like “tentacles” and “infestation” in the lead paragraph, I know I’m dealing with yet another neo-Marxist screed about the evils of so-called libertarian tech-heads.
For this yahoo, apparently the tech folks currently making San Francisco one of the wealthiest places on the planet are only valuable insofar as they espouse leftist hooey and hate conservatives and actual libertarians. The only libertarians he approves of are those whose libertarianism is encompassed by an adoration of free sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll.
Otherwise, toe that Marxist, altruist party line, young comrades. Because unless you do, you have the stink of wealth about you, and must be erased for your sins.
