The Modern Dark Age had indicators that it was already set into motion as early as the lack of reaction to the 1973 Roe Vs. Wade decision that mandatorily legalized and officially sanctioned baby murder in all 50 states. The fact that people mostly just looked the other way is a 20/20 hindsight indicator that the country’s morals were already perhaps hopelessly lost.

The genius of Sam Walton was that he was able to inspre his employees to put something of their own stamp on his stores from day to day that did not require his continued presence. Steve Jobs did precisely the opposite, stamping something of his own personality on both employees and customers. Walmart has well survived the death of Sam Walton, whereas Apple continues to suffer heavily the demise of Steve Jobs.
