Steve Jobs’ David Mamet moment (whiffed)

Posted Oct 21, 2011 by Tom Jackson

Updated Oct 21, 2011 at 05:21 PM

Like playwright David Mamet, Steve Jobs grew up cocooned in a left-liberal environment; unlike Mamet, neither his profession (as an engineer) or his real-life experiences convinced him that the ideology he embraced was at odds with his intellect or instincts.

Unlike Jobs, Mamet was able to recognize his folly, and switch courses, bringing his mind and heart into harmony.  He has written extensively about his epiphany, most recently in his nonfiction bestseller, “The Secret Knowledge.”

Alas, Jobs, the brains and inspiration behind Apple and its iRevolution, died in ideological conflict, as a leak from Walter Isaacson’s pending biography reveals.  Jobs generally supported liberal Democrats and rooted for Barack Obama, but when he met the President, Jobs chewed him out over White House policies that were anathema to business expansion and job-building.  Steve Hayward has more about Jobs’ close brush with economic conservatism here.

Astonishing, how a man of such vision in one area can be so confoundingly blinkered in another.
