People unfit for freedom - who cannot do much with it - are hungry for power. The desire for freedom is an attribute of a "have" type of self. It says: leave me alone and I shall grow, learn, and realize my capacities. The desire for power is basically an attribute of a "have not" type of self.

People who are too concerned with how well they are doing will be less successful and feel less competent than those who focus on the task itself... Some psychologists call it a conflict between ego-orientation, or between extrinsic and intrinsic motivation... but in all cases, what counts is whether attention is turned away from the task at hand and focused on the self and its future rewards, or whether it is instead trained on the task itself. The latter attitude seems the more fruitful.

Per me, il Venerdì Santo rappresenta uno degli eventi più importanti nell'evoluzione di credenze e dell'umanità religiose, non solo per il cristianesimo, ma per l'umanità in generale, in quanto rappresenta il più grande sacrificio da Gesù Cristo tanto quanto la sofferenza eccezionale e la passione in Gesù 'la vita di Cristo. questa frase da Gesù Cristo, "Padre, perdona loro perché non sanno quello che fanno"., significa l'ultimo e il più alto livello di perdonare nonostante le azioni velenose e orribili peccati di nemici. Venerdì Santo è il giorno speciale per la meditazione sulle sofferenze e sacrifici compiuti da Gesù Cristo per l'umanità, e, soprattutto, per la raccolta la forza di perdonare i propri nemici peggiori indipendentemente dalle loro azioni inaccettabili.

Personally, I'm in favor of democracy, which means that the central institutions of society have to be under popular control. Now, under capitalism, we can't have democracy by definition. Capitalism is a system in which the central institutions of society are in principle under autocratic control. Thus, a corporation or an industry is, if we were to think of it in political terms, fascist that is, it has tight control at the top and strict obedience has to be establishedat every level--there's little bargaining, a little give and take,but the line of authority is perfectly straightforward. Just as I'm opposed to political fascism, I'm opposed to economic fascism. I think that until the major institutions of society are under the popular control of participants and communities, it's pointless to talk about democracy.

Look how nightingales sang of old, cocks crowed, kine lowed, sheep bleated, sparrows chirped, dogs barked, so they do still: we keep our madness still, play the fool still; we are of the same humours and inclinations as our predecessors were; you shall find us all alike, much as one, we and our sons, and so shall our posterity continue to the last.
