Self

it seems to me this morning that identification is always already dissociation, or at least any identification not based on love. This is a very Buddhist idea, and in that regard it is worth pointing out that, historically, people in his time were defined by social status and tribe to an extent inconceivable now.

Ponder what motivates people to show up to work on time. Is it not fear? Fear, yes, of being fired, but more importantly fear of being thought of as a lesser person. Fear had its place, clearly, but I think we have overdone it.
