I started warning about that backlash since 1996. My forecasts on technology and ventures proved far more accurate than apathy quotient and social behavior. I now think any such backlash if it were to manifest would build up until the point of an Arab Spring rather than a consumer boycott. Hopefully my peers in venturing will learn more global leadership skills, a bit less sociopath, and embrace more of the Ford philosophy. I thought John Hagel did a fairly good job in response to this debate, which I found embarrassing, primarily for Harvard.

Dear Irving. Thank you for a thoughtful reflection on the Article by Jill Lepore. Such a balanced view was missing in the debate started by her article.
