Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Gab@StFerdinandIII -

Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Corona, 'The Science' or Scientism, Islam, the State, the cult of Gender Fascism, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion...

The importance of Steve Jobs and the political-economy.

An iPhone for every [poor] household!

by StFerdIII


RIP Steve Jobs.

There are two things missing in most media accounts about the inimitable Steve Jobs. The first is that the transformation of Apple began to occur with its purchase of Jobs' NeXT software firm which was focused on object oriented programming and development. Apple's technical functionality took off post the late 90s acquisition. The second, is that Jobs is simply an impossibility for all who pray and prostrate themselves at the altar of benighted socialism and Marxism.

For the one-world, everyone-is-equal-wonders, Jobs must be a pariah. His career is more like the moronically named 'robber barons' of the 19th century, who brought mass production to steel, rail, oil, consumer goods, and transport. Jobs does not fit into an equation as a Keynesian letter. Krugman and most economists must hate him. He cannot be marched around to the tune of the communal cult. Even the 'great man' Obama would be annoyed by his truculent pride. He represents everything that the crying statist hates – independence, creativity, emotion, intelligence and individuality. He is the anti-Christ of the many Marxist cults which caper like drunken monkeys on the political-economic landscape. Steve Jobs is simply an un-programmable part of life's truly diverse [in the realist sense] equation.

The Marxist-Socialist-Statist position, which is about 60% of the voting population is that real wealth is only plundered not made, and must therefore be shared. Marxian 'economics' badly states that capitalism simply consumes and eventually implodes. No new markets, products, price-points or general welfare will ever emanate from the enjoinment of capital with labor and brains. This was and still is an 'iron law' amongst the redistributionists and class-warfarists.

Socialists are of course hypocrites. Many use the products that the Jobs enigma produces. Some 'minority' politicians in the US are even demanding that iPhones and iPads be redistributed to poorer minority households [see Jesse Jackson Jr.]. Smart phones, tablets and wireless connectivity will soon be declared human rights by the big-brains and liberal left. Even when they have no clue about economic processes, and no stakeholder interest in the merger of capital, risk and development, the Marxist cult will still demand 'their fair share' of the proceeds and spoils. It is their right of existence after all.

When Jobs sold NeXT back to Apple and then became the CEO, the company of Macintosh was struggling and was worth 7000% less than it is today by stock value. In the past 10 years Apple has hired 50.000 workers, and indirectly now supports well over a million jobs which provide products and services up and down-stream for the Apple brands. Jobs innovation was to bring the NeXT programming and engineering talent to bear on merging the consumer and professional markets into a prosumer 'experience' that over-used word which means nothing or everything.

With NeXT Jobs took the 'experience idea' and infused the entire architectural design at Apple to transform it into discrete, manageable pieces from the operation system to the user interface. These ideas were not his, nor were they unique. What was special was the way Apple revamped its code to be of the highest quality. This allowed code reused, faster innovation, and manageable maintenance. Jobs has come as close as anyone in making technology a manufacturing process of high quality and reliability, as well as easy to use. These objectives have been, and still are the IT nirvana. Instead of fixing your engine every morning before driving your car, Jobs forced his team to allow users to simply turn a key and be confronted by a simple dashboard. No more crashes, no more hassle, no more incomprehensible interfaces.

But imagine the world of the Obama cult, and of centralized UN-Euro governance. Would a Steve Jobs flourish in Norway or Nice, or in a Moslem state ? Is it possible that an over-taxed, over-regulated Obama-political-economy will produce a future successor to the iPhone?  Does Moslem culture create 'geniuses' such as Jobs?   Is life by bureaucracy and unions a sure path to prosperity? Will a Steve Jobs Jr. be able to produce disruptions and excellence in autos, energy, banking, telecoms, and agricultural? Jobs not only made money, he redistributed millions each year to private and public charity. But this will never stop the big-brains from whining that the economy is too 'capitalist', when in fact it is largely statist, and that the benefices of capitalists like Jobs need to be managed, owned and spread by the caring, loving state and its enforcers. The real lesson about Jobs is that a free economy helps everyone. It gives the geniuses an opportunity to make and create.
