Steve Jobs and Real Courage

The Washington Examiner offers an interesting take on Steve Jobs – his ability to mostly say no to politics and avoid the lobby machine. Tim Carney writes:

Under Jobs, Apple largely avoided the unseemly games of campaign contributions and lobbying.

Consider this extraordinary fact: despite being a $100-billion-a-year company in a rapidly changing industry, Apple never formed a political action committee.

    Truly amazing, when one considers that the payment of tribute/bribes to the agents of Caesar is almost a necessity today for any business to survive.

    I read online that Dean Ornish was Jobs’ doctor. I wonder if Jobs’ was following his dietary advice.

    It’s not really that amazing, considering the way Jobs did business. You can research his work ethics quite easily online. I think he was an amazing salesman, he used the current ideas and incorporated them into one that was presented in a nice fashion. Calling him the Da Vinci of our time (like the media does, probably to divert the attention from the real issues) is an overstatement.

    When looking at the accomplishments of Steve Jobs, the following thought comes to mind: Freedom to innovate gave the world Steve Jobs. Democracy gave us dubya AND Obama.
