“Turned out he was right,” Palihapitiya said. “When are we going to stop shooting ourselves in the foot? When are we going to actually take the time to look past who was saying things and actually listen to them word for word?”
… I’ll give you an example. I started to tweet three links a day over the past three days, and the only reason I did that is I started to think things were so hyper-contentious and hyper-partisan that I just wanted to show a few sides. One day I found a couple of links, one of which was from Jonathan Greenblatt of the ADL, you I thought have a very powerful message. And one was from Mike Flynn. His message was also pretty powerful if you just read it. If you took the names off, all the content was so valuable. Both points of view, but the minute it goes into the world people immediately judge and they kill the message because of the messenger. And this is exactly a moment when you have an opportunity to stop doing that because the stakes are so high.
If you have eyes, open them!
