He seemed to be doing one helluva great job for the past 15 years. It wasn't until SJW's appeared on the scene that he stopped having the "ability to lead". The mind bending irony of all this is how the main guiding principle of the Mozilla Foundation is based around openness and freedom. In more and more cases around the internet "openness and freedom" is reserved for people whose opinions are politically correct.
What's the red pill take away here? Our world is changing. You can invent something everyone uses, and found a company based on beautiful utopian ideals -- and still get royally screwed by social justice warriors. Brendan was too much of an idealist and he's been burned by it. Learn from his mistakes.
