WASHINGTON, DC - OCTOBER 03: The Weekly Standard Editor William Kristol (L) leads a discussion on PayPal co-founder and former CEO Peter Thiel's National Review article, 'The End of the Future,' at the National Press Club October 3, 2011 in Washington, DC. Kristol is on the advisory board of e21, the discussion's co-sponsor. Thiel argues that the United States and its leaders are on the wrong track regarding scientific innovation and that 'when tracked against the admittedly lofty hopes of the 1950s and 1960s, technological progress has fallen short in many domains.'
