    All the problems in us are directly tied to the fact that we're never given the chance to learn anything but how to walk and talk. From then on, it's sit down and be quiet.
    By the time we're old enough to think, we don't know what to think.
    As late teenagers, we throw up our hands and say I give up. I can't make heads or tails of all this so I'm going to persue this money, that religion or that politics.
    And since there's no money in telling people to be themselves and be happy and all will follow, we tell them elaborate ways to be happy, when it's obviously a simple choice. And instead of encouraging individuality and creative thought, we tell them to conform to the norms of the day.
    The only way to save us from our economic and political woes is something we can never really consider because we're lost in our mad pursuit of money and security (which is all that religion and politics is).
    In the mean time, our owners are very pleased with themselves.
    Money was the first step, religion the second and now all they have to do is stir the pot.

    Wonderfully crafted and presented. I wish the pauses are longer for the complex topics, so we can have a moment to absorb them. We can pause on YouTube, but it’s different.

    This video made want to do something productive until my inferiority complex arose when Alfred Alder called me a bum which I was already conscious of.

    Alfred Adler is even better than I thought. Thanks for this, Academy of Ideas.

    3:41 , the problem is becoming inferior while going against a higher power and than holding yourself superior while instead of fixing that inferiority problem , complaining against that superior power you stood against in the first place , strange (is it strange how i talk or how i describe , because than it’s not my talk)

    The more I watch these videos the more I'm convinced that there's one fundamental choice in life.
    Boredom or Sufferring
    Cowardice or Courage
    Happiness is for the fortunate.

    The hypocrisy when a video tells you not to procrastinate and you are procrastinating by watching the video.

    I'm pretty sure some of us did this.
