Russell Brand on Porn: How It Relates To Everything - YouTube
instant gratification robs you of happiness, that results from putting in the work, being considered, mindful, thoughtful. effort can be the most rewarding thing in life. the pleasure of work. reward comes from hard work. --- a selfless life can bring much more pleasure than selfish life. we are social creatures. the only thing you've got to keep are your thoughts, emotions and health (well being, fitness)

Flüchtlingskrise: "Die Verteddybärisierung der Flüchtlinge" - Kolumne - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Auf Gefühlen kann man nichts bauen, mit Gefühlen kann man keine Zivilgesellschaft neu denken, durch Gefühle ändert sich nichts. // retweet and facebook like/share does not correlate with personal action! // long-lasting change comes from intrinsic motivation (self education leads to taking action one self). Grows only slowly and Vegan trend is example. Slowly but steadily. One by one. Tribe is growing. // Can't be done entirely w nanny state nor corporate PR. Modern life is about conformity. Easy. Bc life is already hard enough. Thus effort seems unsurmountable obstacle (obstacles put in your way of change, ie going vegan). Turnaround. Admitting one was wrong the whole time and being deceived. Comfortable w status quo, uncomfortable standing out. // &! - ask the right question (framing). // Book: Groundswell.
