The Morality of Steve Jobs

If you think you're going to be upset by this, don't read it. I, like many of you, think that what Westboro Baptist does is ghastly. But when I read that Margie Phelps said that Westboro was going to picket Jobs' funeral because he "served himself, not God", I thought she had summed up perfectly the thing that unites all those who are opposed to genuine human progress and the thing that makes it possible: the individual human mind, which functions by means of reason and a code that upholds the value of the individual's own life.


  1. Steve Jobs is an icon. You can't but admit this fact. He was a man who was one step ahead of everyone.

  2. To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one's own in the midst of abundance.
