Great leaders, like Steve Jobs or Jeff Bezos, also focused on the long term.
Is it that we collectively thought Steve Jobs was a great man, even when we knew he made billions off the backs of children? Or maybe it's that it feels like all our heroes are counterfeit. The world itself's just one big hoax. Spamming each other with out running commentary of bullshit masquerading as insight, our social media faking as intimacy. Or is it that we voted for this? Not with our rigged elections, but with our things, our property, our money. I'm not saying anything new. We all know why we do this, not because "Hunger Games" books makes us happy but because we wanna be sedated. Because it's painful not to pretend, because we're cowards. F*ck society.
