The Program. www.psychologie-heute.de
Zwiespalt zwischen medialer und gelebter Realität seiner Protagonisten. [...] Je weiter der Film in der Erzählung vorankommt, desto mehr verfällt Armstrong seinem eigenen Lügengebäude, seiner perfekten Heldengeschichte. [ case of isolation as with people on Social Media and B, C, D Celebrity types ] [...] The Program erzählt aber nicht nur eine Parabel über den schönen Schein im Sport und über die Heldenverehrung und -gläubigkeit der Millionen Zuschauer. Der Film variiert zugleich auch ein uramerikanisches Thema: Die Lüge ist fundamentaler Teil des American Dream, und der Mythos vom Comeback (was im Grunde auch die Urgeschichte des Sports ist) und der Traum von der Unbesiegbarkeit gehören dazu. //&! Nietzsche on: The Superman youtu.be/bxiKqA-u8y4 - "carving their own path [] suffering as a neccesary component of good things. [] who we would like to evolve into [] super-version [] refine our own ambitions" //&! aspirational 'one fucker that broke out of the system rigged against us.'

What Alphabet Means — The Information
Google’s growing ambitions were complicating an already complicated structure. [...] Google’s new structure—more than a year in the making—foreshadows more big acquisitions, some spinoffs and probably some more financial accountability. But can Google avoid a conglomerate tax? // &! Larry Page and ‘Retirement’ 2.0 - It is that the transition itself is so unusual, and yet a blueprint I believe other CEOs will try to follow. [ leverage what you have to reach out even further, when you can. then do it. enabled by dual-class stock structure despite haggles with Wall Street during earning calls of spending/losses of Google X and operational costs (lavish perks and compensation) and Wall Street thinking/feeling they get the shorter stick. Forget compounding (real world impact (people, planet, health, ...) >> Brin & Page's view, imagination, vision ...) if there is no % behind it. They are financiers, making money with money. ] // &!
