From Mental Hellth: “In the 2000s and 2010s, something worrying kept happening in the supposedly happy and healthy suburb of Palo Alto, California: kids were committing suicide. The deaths forced some to reckon with a dark side to this tech-centered community. But no one seemed willing to do something about it, partially because doing something about it would challenge the very ethos of Silicon Valley capitalism. That’s the environment Malcolm Harris grew up in, and it’s part of what led him to write his bestselling new book Palo Alto: A History of California, Capitalism, and the World.
Malcolm was kind enough to talk with me about the mental health side of techno-capitalism, and what we can do to take back control from the people making the world such a depressing place.”
