Marc Andreessen is pushing STEM or die as the alternatives.
“We’re in a bubble for people with a non-Ivy League, non-technical education,” says Andreessen, who studied computer science at the University of Illinois. “If you have a degree in English from a tier B state school, you’re not prepared.”
Andreessen says the middle class will vanish.
Andreessen says STEM will inherit the earth and the rest will be thralls told what to do by electronic whips.
Why should the rest of the population stand for this? That is a question not asked.
Andreessen has completely internalized the Silicon Valley ethos of no loyalty to the 90 percent. They can be discarded at the whim of the VC elite in Silicon Valley. I wonder if he would have that attitude if he had to live in Detroit? The 90 percent are as important as the 95 percent of DNA they used to call unimportant.
