Peter Thiel is an internet entrepreneur and a libertarian.

Facebook, which he took a big stake in, connected people around the world. Now he tells Mike Williams that his venture capital fund and philanthropy are aimed at encouraging the kind of technological innovation that the West needs to survive.
