So here we all are, living in a world
that has conditioned us to be completely self-absorbed all the time by
worrying about what other people think of us! Now that's fucked up. You
think you have been taught to "strive" but what you have really been
taught is to fear the judgment of people who have earned neither the
trust nor the authority to judge you, and who are all solipsistically
paranoid about the same judgment coming from you.
