Delusions of wisdom 

I sadly realized that the wisdom of most business professors is rooted in fear. The wisdom of true change agents from Jesus to Joesph Smith is rooted in celebration. These men recognized their inner Schopenhauer: they had no freedom but to do what they were meant to do. There are countless others like that, from human rights lawyers in China to aspiring artists. 

Capitalism needs fearful people to serve the needs of the fearless. That’s its inherent contradiction.
