There's a lot I agree with - namely, that degrowth is bad, a lot of stagnationism that masks itself as caution and humility is actually a very anti-human force that needs to be directly opposed, but I also think there's a lot that it misses; namely, that the direction and order in which tech gets developed matters.

eg. I think brain computer interfaces are great and will be super important, but they are also risky: we're literally talking about reading + writing to our minds. To me it seems crucial that that stuff is as open-source as possible, favors local compute over phoning home... What is a16z doing to achieve that outcome?

It think there's a mismatch between what has been stamped as "degrowth" by SV types so that they can rail against it and as climate scientists like Julia Steinberger use it. I do not see what's wrong with taking a step back and asking ourselves, as human race, what we're doing wrong and how it is affecting our future.
