Steve Jobs on Changing the World

By Ethan Maurice | November 27, 2015

A 46 second clip of Steve Jobs and his realization that people, just like us, created almost everything in our modern world. Buildings, laws, cars, businesses, court systems, governments, schools, social constructs, and movements were all thought up and made by people no smarter than us. We can change these things, ignore them, or create new ones. Our society as a whole is ever evolving and we can participate in that evolution in any way we desire. If we realize this, we are powerful.

“When you grow up, you get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside of the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life. Have fun, save a little money.

That's a very limited life.

Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact and that is that everything you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it. You can influence it. You can build your own things that other people can use.

Once you learn that you'll never be the same again.”
