When I read the essay, I thought of P Thiel's question of self-reflection that analyzes in the reverse direction:

"What important truth do very few people agree with you on?"[1]

I interpret "truth" to really be a highly-opinionated belief rather than something like "2+2=4". In other words, what factors do you believe in that would make the business model successful that outsiders would dismiss as insane or stupid?

(On trivia related note: I notice the blog as the title of "stupitidy" instead of "stupidity" so I'm not sure if there's an inside joke I missed.)
