Will we ever see female or non-white versions of Steve Jobs and Elon Musk?
Since women and non-whites are being held up at the expense of white men, will there be great innovators and pioneers from women or non-whites in our lifetimes? Are white men the only ones capable of greatness?
Steve Jobs and Elon Musk were founders of companies that made a profit from proof of concepts, they basically hired the real geniuses to make it happen.
Everything they have is based on the work and ideas of women that solved the problems without them knowing it.
The first computer program was written by a woman, before computers existed, frequency hopping was created by a woman and it makes our modern communications possible including computers.
There is many that inadvertently or indirectly contributed to computers and smartphones.
Lots of "non-white" people who have made their way in the world or deserved recognition or are wealthy (for those he see wealth as a measure of worth).
Michael Jackson (et al)
Sammy Davis Jnr
Abdul Samad Rapiu
George Washington Carver
Martin Luther King Jr.
Hui Ka Yan
Madam C.J. Walker
Jack Roosevelt Robinson
Joe Lewis Barrow
Mae Carol Jemison
Etc, etc, etc... plenty of billionaires in there too.
The ability to create technology that was meant to simplify life but in general has done nothing but turn humans into automatons with the attention span of a goldfish or is it writing a series of novels that got hundreds of millions of children and young adults to read books?
Greatness depends on your values. I think a great person is someone who possesses virtues like charity, patience, love, and mercy. Mother Theresa was a great person by my standards. Much greater than Elon Musk or Steve Jobs.
perhaps, but advantaging people based on race beyond their capabilities won't do it anymore than throwing a man that can’t swim into the arctic ocean will teach them how to do the breast stroke. It will take a complete culture shift advocating an attitude of aspiration and personal accountability to do that. Not the dependent victimhood that the Democrats are spouting.
