“What was behind this smug presumption that what pleased you was bad or at least unimportant in comparison to other thing?… Little children were trained not to do “just what they liked’ but…but what?…Of course! What other liked. And which others? Parents, teachers, supervisors, policeman, judges, officials, kings, dictators. All authorities. When you are trained to despise “just what you like” then, of course, you become a much more obedient servant of others– a good slave. When you learn not to do “just what you like” then the System loves you.”
