Moore's law was about a one node shrink every 18 months, meaning a reduction in structure sizes by sqrt(2), i.e. twice the number of transistors at the same die size. The reduction in size meant a reduction in gate thickness and operating voltage by sqrt(2) and a reduction of capacitances by a factor of two. Those allowed an increase in clock speed of sqrt(2) at constant power. None of that is happening any more.

In a consumer society there are inevitably two kinds of slaves: the prisoners of addiction and the prisoners of envy.
