Last quote by Peter Thiel

The most contrarian thing of all is not to oppose the crowd but to think for yourself.

Peter Thiel has most recently been quoted in an article called Trump's election showed 'the tide is going out' on globalization. Peter Thiel said, “There's a technological determinism story you can tell where this is the future and China will eventually buckle under and cave and eventually adopt all of these things. But then you might wonder, maybe this doesn't happen at all, and maybe it's possible for the internet to actually fragment and not to have this historical necessity to it. That's so 2005, it feels so dated. A decade ago, this was a group of people who were running the world. And now, it's just a group of people who messed up the world. We're now in a bull market in politics.”. Peter Thiel has been quoted a grand total of 53 times in 26 articles.

Peter Thiel quotes

Globalization may end by accident or by terrible miscalculation: It may end by world war. Because there would be no winners in a new world war, every path away from globalization will end in catastrophe.

Just as much as it's about making America great, Trump's agenda is about making America a normal country. A normal country doesn't have a half-trillion-dollar trade deficit. A normal country doesn't fight five simultaneous undeclared wars. In a normal country, the government actually does its job.

No matter what happens in this election, what Trump represents isn't crazy and it's not going away.

We know what a smartphone looks like and does. It's not the fault of [Apple CEO] Tim Cook, but it's not an area where there will be any more innovation.

[I]n a way I could understand why Trump was doing this. Romney tried the opposite strategy where he was extremely nice to everybody and just got rolled.

Well there is a big difference between campaigning and governing. And so certainly the hope is that Trump will be president of the entire country. That's certainly what he said in his acceptance speech last night and I am hopeful that he will be inclusive as a president.

It is a great day for Terry Bollea and a great day for everyone's right to privacy.

It's less about revenge and more about specific deterrence. I saw Gawker pioneer a unique and incredibly damaging way of getting attention by bullying people even when there was no connection with the public interest.

The kind place where I worry about the most on a policy level is, do we get into more wars or not? I'm not sure if that's more of a temperament or more a matter of world view, but certainly I would worry much more in that with Hillary getting us into wars.

There are things that Trump said a decade ago that even he would absolutely no longer say today.

I really didn't think that there would be this sort of a visceral reaction. It's surprising to me that anybody would say that you're beyond the pale for taking a position that's held by half the country.

When the distracting spectacles of this election season are forgotten and the history of our time is written, the only important question will be whether or not that new politics came too late.

No matter what happens in this election, what Trump represents isn't crazy, and it's not going away.

If you're a single-digit millionaire like Hulk Hogan, you have no effective access to the legal system.

The truth is, no matter how crazy this election seems, it is less crazy than the condition of our country.

Obviously, I'll get some very tough questions about Trump. But I thought the best way to advance the discussion was not to have some completely contrived format. The future of this country depends on us engaging with the tough questions.

The line cannot or should not be at a point where you're excommunicating half the country. Some fringe views I hope we can tolerate. Some fringe views are beyond the pale.

Most of the millennials have lower expectations than their baby boomer parents. Where I differ from others in Silicon Valley is in thinking that you can't fence yourself off. If it continues, it will ultimately be bad for everybody.

I was surprised by the intensity. This is one of the few times I was involved in something that was not a fringe effort but was mainstream. Millions of people are backing Trump. I did not appreciate quite how polarizing the election would be in Silicon Valley and elsewhere.

It would be a mistake and inappropriate to instantly demonize Hillary and to try and sabotage her presidency.

There will be an important role for me and others to somehow play in speaking truth to power.

When Donald Trump asks us to Make America Great Again, he's not suggesting a return to the past. He's running to lead us back to that bright future.

When I was a kid, the great debate was about how to defeat the Soviet Union, and we won. Now we are told that the great debate is about who gets to use which bathroom. This is a distraction from our real problems. Who cares?

I am proud to be gay. I am proud to be a Republican, but most of all I am proud to be an American.

We don't need to see Hillary Clinton's deleted emails: her incompetence is in plain sight. She pushed for a war in Libya, and today it's a training ground for ISIS. On this most important issue, Donald Trump is right. It's time to end the era of stupid wars and rebuild our country.

I've always had this really strong sense that death was a terrible, terrible thing. I think that's somewhat unusual. Most people end up compartmentalizing, and they are in some weird mode of denial and acceptance about death, but they both have the result of making you very passive. I prefer to fight it.

The 1920s were the last decade in American history during which one could be genuinely optimistic about politics.

I figured it would eventually come out. It's not for me to decide what happens to Gawker. If America rallies around Gawker and decides we want more people to be outed and more sex tapes to be posted without consent, then they will find a way to save Gawker, and I can't stop it.
