"What experiences are you proud of?" FB asks ... providing a list to choose from ... and no option to create a truth.
"The answer provided is invalid." Simpler: FB is fascistic.

Ok ... but how about this as first effort: mount a campaign against sexual assault.
Of course you want profit. And gain. And security. Are you willing to live as a Nazi to have those?
So long as there's "plausible deniability" for the mundane assault against females there can not be "rule of law".
You want to secure your income from the mafia? from the fascists? from the psychopaths and sociopaths? and you want authentic happiness? FFS ... are you or are you not merely brain-damaged?

Yuppies profit from education ...
... and then plead ignorance?!

Think of things this way: the psychopaths who run casinos (And yes, of course sociopaths are on staff.) use the same tactics and strategy when it comes to economy and public/political policy.
When/if we "dis-intermediate" we cut the fascists out of the circle. (Is why Putin is making his power grab just now? maybe ... he's a cold-blooded shark, but he's not a stupid shark.)

Dis-intermediate ... dis-aggregate. (De-construct? I've become cynical about PoMo.)

Bourgeois society took away our nightly camp-fire and ... eventually ... gave us WWW.
I've been com_tech since 1968. I'd swap this stuff for the nightly camp-fire.

via +Andy Williamson, by +Stanford Social Innovation Review:  
"a number of funders have begun exploring how to deliberately reintroduce risk-taking into their processes and portfolios in search of breakthrough change."

p.s. I'd place my trust on such as Kettering; Such as Knight Foundation? hmmmm ... not so much. From my perspective they're far too much like the carnivorous VC I've fought off over the years.

"Harold Bloom has written, in “The Anatomy of Influence,” a kind of summing-up — or, as he puts it in his distinctive idiom, mixing irony with histrionism, “my virtual swan song,” born of his urge “to say in one place most of what I have learned to think about how influence works in imaginative literature.”"
