Steve supported socialism? When and where? The guy didn’t do non-anonymous charitable donations. You have to prove it to me.

Are you kidding? The culture and personna of Apple is as socialist and politically correct as it gets in the corporate world.

Most of Gates’ contributions—$192,000—went to Republicans. All of Jobs’ donations went to Democrats.

In SaraJohnson's derangement against the late Steve Jobs she gets it wrong. While he did support the DNC and a few candidates in the late 90s and early 2000s, like Bill Bradley against Al Gore, he was not a reliable big money donor and donated absolutely nothing after 2006.

Was he the whacko marxist-socialist CEO she describes? Let's look at his views on education. He blamed the unions for destroying it, for high costs, for robbing it of market competition, he believed in vouchers, in merit based promotion, in teachers not technology. He believed in equality of opportunity, not outcome.

Here's a 1995 in depth interview where you'll see those views: Smithsonian Oral History Interview with Steve Jobs

It seems to me he could best be described as an old line Democrat, one who believed in markets, in opportunity, a kind of Democrat which is effectively extinct today.
