Damore on Silicon Valley Groupthink

Harmeet Dhillon

According to Damore:

Silicon Valley started as sort of libertarian, open to many ideas. Now, there is a group think. We see many people leaving Silicon Valley because of this. I’ve talked to a few [Google employees and] it seems like it’s gotten even worse – they have doubled down on some of this diversity rhetoric and people are even more afraid now to speak up. Surveys show that about 80% of conservatives now don’t want to talk about anything at work. People are definitely afraid of Google. It’s the most powerful company in the world. But, I think that they are really seeing the push back from conservatives and free thinkers alike.
