    Too bad, Lady Une. You were far too lenient.
    As a soldier, yes. But as a civilian I lived an austere life.

    Also, half of it just sounds like parenting practices throughout the world :\ Oh no, someone found a book where their parents marked down things about their height and weight, but not about their feelings! Someone call the police!

    "The vanity of intelligence is that the intelligent man is often more committed to 'one-upping' his opponent than being truthful. When the idea of intelligence, rather than intelligence itself, becomes a staple, there is no wisdom in it."
    Criss Jami

    "Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain but it takes character and self control to be understanding and forgiving."

    Technology favors Tyranny

    Systemic systems relying on technology to compete with the world inevitably leads to a system of governing that relies on exploiting the "advantages" technology brings. By its very nature it becomes more manipulation of human emotions and controlling how they utilize technology through selective biases and filters that direct thinking towards viewpoints that are in-line with the ruling party.

    Incidentally, I was thinking of a quote by Edward Bernays when googling, "Democracy leads to manipulation," and government and technology are the first words on this, 'The Era of Manipulation' website.
    - https://www.journalofdemocracy.org/a...-manipulation/

    The quote I was thinking about:
    “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. ...We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. ...In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons...who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”
    ― Edward Bernays, Propaganda

    No one could see the colour blue until modern times

    Due to lack of interaction with the color blue (and therefore no word exists in ancient cultures) and anyone brought up in similar settings to ancient times such as tribal society might not perceive that it exists when asked to point it out. The brain essentially filters out things it is not "programmed" to interact with, and those who are predisposed to contextualize their interaction with a locus of perception attuned to cultural norms of conditioning might easily disregard context of varied viewpoints. This is perhaps similar to the nature of politicians to completely ignore what their "opponent" says, while they are too busy themselves preparing their repartee; in a similar vein to that of the "office nerd" adage, giving their plan for revamping business operations, only to be shunned (because they were the "outsider" after-all?) only for one of the more popular people to then basically say the exact same thing the following meeting as if it was their idea, because their proximity effect to what wasn't priority for them to consider managed to block itself out; conveniently (though perhaps this is really more an example of herd mentality and people stealing other people's ideas because they lack the capacity to creatively think outside of a box?)

    Bicameralism (psychology)

    The “bicameral mind” 30 years on: a critical reappraisal of Julian Jaynes’ hypothesis

    Essentially it's believed to explain why more primitive cultures latch onto religious ideas, and why people with "processing disorders" are so irrational and incapable of properly recognizing/interpreting things correctly.
