Looking for Jobs
A sad day for the world. It’s a perfect time to reflect on Steve Jobs contribution to the world and a great time to ask all the anti-capitalist out there to give up all the nifty toys and gadgets they own! Funny how the demands of protestors at the “Occupy Wall Street” do not match their lifestyles. The irony! Kevin Williamson of NRO has more.
I was down at the Occupy Wall Street protest today, and never has the divide between the iPhone world and the politics world been so clear: I saw a bunch of people very well-served by their computers and telephones (very often Apple products) but undeniably shortchanged by our government-run cartel education system. And the tragedy for them — and for us — is that they will spend their energy trying to expand the sphere of the ineffective, hidebound, rent-seeking, unproductive political world, giving the Barney Franks and Tom DeLays an even stronger whip hand over the Steve Jobses and Henry Fords. And they — and we — will be poorer for it.
And to the kids camped out down on Wall Street: Look at the phone in your hand. Look at the rat-infested subway. Visit the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue, then visit a housing project in the South Bronx. Which world do you want to live in?
