Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us
Fun little video I saw linked this morning, thought forumfall might enjoy it.
Really not surprising to me considering I've seen this play out irl more times than I can count. Actually, I kinda thought this was common knowledge to be honest, considering the whole "Don't turn your hobbies into a job." line people tend to throw around a lot.
The reason so many big corporations/sectors of government are purely profit driven--often to the detriment of their employees and costumers, and even society at large in some cases--is because the ones running them ARE purpose driven, and do care about mastery, it's just the purpose is power, and they're pursuing mastery over us.
I think it's fairly naive to assume they don't already have "mastery" over us.
