Social selves

A man has as many social selves as there are distinct groups of persons about whose opinion he cares. He generally shows a different side of himself to each of these different groups. —William James

Start thinking for yourself

Which is why I basically sleep walk through everything. I haven’t had an independent thought in years. Sometimes, I forget my own name.

Interesting reflexion; does consuming TED (and all other “thinkies”) make us more smart, less stupid or does it influence our own thinking so much that it’s not our own thinking anymore ?

Its a red tide Lester

“Its a red tide Lester, this life of ours. The shit they make us eat. The boss, the wife, ect. If you don’t stand up to it, let them know you’re still an ape, deep down where it counts…you’re only gonna get washed away”.
