I know you spoke with Audrey Tang, the Digital Minister of Taiwan, and I think the work that she's doing there, and we've interviewed here for our podcast as well represents. Really thinking about how to reboot the core principles of democracy, but in a digital way for the 21st century, under the threat of China trying to sow disinformation in Taiwan and being able to do so reasonably successfully and producing a more coherent society. And you've always said the goal of democracy and information technologies, isn't just connecting people because it's an interesting that as soon as we connected people everywhere, the most popular technology in the world to build was stonewalls. The real goal should be harmonizing people. And I think that goal is a really wise one and rediscovering what we really want here, because to maybe take it full circle, this is Aza's line from the past. If you go back to our original problem statement that we started with this interview, that the problem of humanity is our paleolithic emotions, medieval institutions, and God-like technology that the answer might be something like we have to understand and embrace our paleolithic emotions. We have to upgrade our medieval institutions and philosophy, and we have to have the wisdom to guide our God-like technology.
