People stare at the same signs the've seen on the wall thousands of times before and never think to react. They stare at the same piles of trash, walk past the same hovels, and the same wretches... And all of them think a persistent little lie which comforts them.
"I don't know what to do, so I shouldn't do anything."
That's all it takes to turn people into slaves. There's no need to extort or force. Simply make it convenient.
Learn to think for yourself, we'll show you how.
My advice to myself 5 years ago:
- Believe in yourself more, you don't suck at this
- Get involved in the tech community, and find people like you in the industry
- Learn the languages and fundamentals in-depth instead of the libraries
I've been buying all kinds of exotic kitten food flavors like duck, chilean seabass, shrimp w/ tuna & pumpkin, salmon, etc.
So when I go to pick a can, I say "what will it be tonight, boiz!?!?"
And they start meowing and walking in circles while I describe the various flavor palettes of each one. It's a pretty fun ritual.
