Remember Socrates? You know, the guy who hung out in marketplaces asking everyone if they knew what justice was, much to the annoyance of the sandals-and-chitin set? He was the OG critical thinker, the patron saint of “Why?” before Google took the crown. But in the shiny playground of the 21st century, where everyone's got a social media megaphone and attention spans shorter than a Kardashian marriage, Socrates is looking more like a dusty relic than a relevant revolutionary.
That's where Jorge Enrique Linares Salgado, a philosopher with a name longer than a Kant syllabus, steps in. He's got a bone to pick with the silicon overlords – they're not just selling you the next iPhone, they're peddling the extinction of critical thought itself. Scary stuff, right? Like an army of self-driving Teslas all programmed to follow the same algorithm, humanity's heading for a philosophical cul-de-sac.
