This isn't about 'fairness', this is about the glorification of the sociopath.

Americans today 'worship' the sociopaths, the narcissists, and the 'bad guys & gals'.

What men like Jobs did to the financial sector is happening in technology as well. Yes, Page & Gates also fit this psychological description, however, they are not 'popular'. Their companies do not hold the popular appeal that Apple now does. Apple has also now become another company too big to fail. If it does, it literally would impact the American economy. There may be hope with these lawsuits if Apple loses either on appeal or another patent suit. There may be hope if Cook continues to 'act' human like his recent apology about the map app. Jobs would NEVER have done that.

As part of my professional work, I deal with the effects of the human psychology on business and the effects of business on the human psychology.

So this is why I am concerned. It affects us all when men like Jobs are worshiped and men like Ritchie are forgotten. It is supremely rational to not like the unlikeable.
