I don't know what he may have promised, but he one intelligent guy, and all the promises may be like Maslow says, invisible patches of uncertainty as ta firm of a high strung up potential into a mediocre and unfulfilled actuality.

I have no choice. I want things too.

Anytime someone feels excluded for anything, I feel hurt.

I feel hurt when I have a girlfriend.

I feel hurt when I have a friend.

I feel hurt when I have an enemy.

I feel hurt when I eat.

I’m tired of hurting others.

I’m tired of hurting all the time.

That’s why I was the one picked for this job.
The purpose of life is to give everyone individually what they always want at the expense of no being - forever.

The biggest problem of life is the, “hey, I don’t want this to be happening” problem for everyone.

Welcome to thinking.

Freedom is not the highest value. Empty all jails, fire all law enforcement, and find out how much you appreciate the freedom for freedom’s sake.

i kind of actually think that for the most part we probably should empty the prisons and fire just about all the cops

Sir, I’m kind of going to have to ask you to just about stop actually trolling in a wishy washy manner.
