Every debate has a moderator, and at PolicyMic there are two: Chris Altchek and Jake Horowitz, the founders of the site. But Chris is the real prime mover. He even experienced a 'light bulb' moment when he decided to start PolicyMic. As Business Insider reports:
Maybe Chris left Goldman Sachs because he was disgusted with the corporatist, Boomer-crafted business culture there? In an interview with Business Insider, he provides some insight:
So although it apparently offers some kind of news 'alternative' for Millennials sick of Boomer culture, PolicyMic is in fact a way to bring Millennials of all political stripes back under Baby Boomer influence. It's a fake alternative, and it can only produce fake debates. Millennials who are clueless enough to fall for it will be responsible for their increased political alienation in the future.
The real tragedy here is that so many so-called libertarians have wittingly or unwittingly decided to contribute to that site. Allow me to remind you guys: corporatism is a form of collectivism, and collectivism is the opposite of individualism — you know, that thing which is supposed to be a core principle of libertarianism. Stop letting others take advantage of you. Stop working for your own ideological enemies. Develop some ideological awareness so you can see these threats coming. There are other people out there counting on you.
