During a recent appearance on The Tim Ferriss Show, Facebook CEO and billionaire election manipulator Mark Zuckerberg revealed that his employees have a “loving” nickname for him: “the Eye of Sauron,” referring to the villain from The Lord of the Rings.
Zuckerberg said, “Some of the folks I work with at the company — they say this lovingly — but I think that they sometimes refer to my attention as the Eye of Sauron. You have this unending amount of energy to go work on something, and if you point that at any given team, you will just burn them.”
The Eye of Sauron is the manifestation of the primary antagonist of the LOTR series in the form of a huge glowing, fiery red eye. Hence, comparisons to Sauron are not “loving”; they paint the leftwing technocrat overlord as evil.
It says something about Zuckerberg’s management style that his employees openly compare him to the Dark Lord Sauron. It says perhaps even more that Zuckerberg thinks the comparison has been made “lovingly.”
