It seems like, in America at least, around 1900-1980 or was the age of the of the Entrepenur. In that time, you had great minds like Edison,Tesla, JP Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, Walt Disney, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and many others rise to prominence. Not only did much of their success depend on their singular vision and their own genius, but they were ambitious in the extreme; Never letting failure stop them; It only emboldened them further. But in many ways, beyond being successful businessmen, they also sought to improve society, to use their wealth, power and influence to improve this country and the lives of those less well off. See, for example, Disney himself, or Rockefeller.
It just seems like we don't have any of those singular, visionary, genius minds anymore; We don't have any Edison's or Walt Disney's anymore. It seems that in general, our society was a lot more decent than--even businessmen were more decent, and politicians too.
Where has this visionary, genius, giving spirit gone? Where are the Walt Disneys and Thomas Edison's of our time?
