about this site
Catholic Sensibility is a personal blog by a Catholic layperson with comments and occasional other writings by Catholics and non-Catholics. We make no particular claims to have the completeness of a Roman Catholic expression of Christianity. It contains opinion, interpretation, and personal musings. That’s it. Nothing official or authoritatively connected to the Magisterium.

Actually, he’s not really poor. But Mr Zuckerberg did lose more wealth today than three-thousand aerospace engineers earn in a lifetime.*
Still a tough day. Stock market losses. Whistleblower. More faith in social media shaken.
A friend of a friend on his internet platform suggested his wealth is well-earned, considering how many jobs he has created. Count me a skeptic there. If he had never been born, those employees would have ended up working in some other emerging social media companies, or maybe even other fields entirely. And a lot of those people were the ones who actually created more jobs as the company expanded.
Without those people, he might well still be tweeting and reading comic books in his mother’s basement.
To be sure, I don’t get a lot of joy in watching people have a bad day. Sometimes, the bad day is an opportunity to assist someone in need. I don’t think I’d have much of anything to help the facebook founder improve his day. I could nudge him to be a seeker of Christianity. Buy him a beer and have real life conversation without thumbs or emojis.
* $7B investment loss vs an engineer’s average lifetime salary of $2.28M.
