In class today, we talked about how Ben Franklin and Steve Jobs changed the world. A big question is who changed it more? I think the answer to this question is rather simple. Although, Steve Jobs advanced technology, Ben Franklin basically started technology. When we were looking at all of what Ben Franklin did today in class, it is hard to wrap your head around everything Ben Franklin has done. He did not have the base technology that Steve Jobs had. Ben Franklin could have possibly been the most innovative thinker in history with the same technology that Jobs had. Like we said in class, if Ben Franklin had the technology that we have today, he would be in the same category of thinkers like Isaac Newton. In reference to the article Moral Perfection, it was asked if Ben Franklin was crazy or admirable in regards to achieving moral perfection. I don’t think Ben Franklin is crazy for trying to achieve moral perfection. It may seem a little “cocky” but I actually admire someone who is trying to better themselves as a person, regardless of how they go about that. Granted, it is crazy because no one could ever really achieve “moral perfection”, but you can’t penalize him for trying. Overall, I think Ben Franklin deserves respect because of what he did during his lifetime. He changed everything and may be cocky, but he still deserves respect. Ben Franklin single handedly changed this world in many ways, and in my opinion, he is one of the greatest innovators and thinkers of all time.
