Yet Another Entitled Tech Idiot

Open letter to SF Mayor Ed Lee and Greg Suhr (police chief)

What are you going to do to address this problem? The residents of this amazing city no longer feel safe. I know people are frustrated about gentrification happening in the city, but the reality is, we live in a free market society. The wealthy working people have earned their right to live in the city. They went out, got an education, work hard, and earned it.

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.


And no.

You’re a goddammed idiot.


How much unprescribed Adderall is going down your gullet? And how much Provigil down the throats of everyone in tech?

You lot being hopped-up on that shit is an even bigger threat than the addicted homeless.

It makes you think you can write ignorant shit like that and delude yourselves into it being sane.

    Please explain why you’re so angry about this letter, I’m obviously missing the point here.

      Then my anger can’t be explained to you at all. You’re him too.

        No, I am not, that’s way too easy. Compassion is a good thing, but people have to understand they are the sole responsible for their own lives. There are lots of people who simply refuse to change their destructing habits (drugs, alcohol, violence), and don’t want to be helped at all: it’s always everybody’s fault except their own. There are many people who had an overload of disfortune in their life, but they do not ruin other peoples lives, but try to make the best of their own, every single miserable goddamm day. A lot of rich people did not earn their money in an honest way, that’s right, but I earn my money in an honest way and a lot of other people also do, and that’s the only thing I have to fuss about. He is not a goddammed idiot, he is telling something both subtle and overt a lot of people do not want to face and hear at all.

        Trust me, where I live, I understand what you’re saying. I deal with shit like that every day. But what’s HE’s saying is entirely different.

        EDIT to add: See this. It says it better than I can:
