"...that Silicon Valley and Washington intelligence people move back and forth professionally and consider themselves to be in the same industry."
Great insight from a delightful Reason article about the science fiction prophet, Philip K. Dick.
Libertarians will want to do something about this problem. They will need to persuade the public that if you move from Silicon Valley to working for the Washington regime, you're not in the information technology industry anymore. Not even close. You're in the organized crime industry.
