The population of morons is always higher than you think possible. I'm amazed society has survived as long as it's has and the wheels keep turning. I have employees I wonder how they can function in the world.
If you figure out a way to control everyone you will be the first in all of human history. It's never been a good thing for most people when someone gains enough power to start controlling them. I don't think it's ever worked out well history.
I'm just trying to be realistic and recognize if I can't raise my kids to do exactly as I want them to at all times my odds are pretty low for the other 6,999,999,995 people in the world.
Until we realize the rules of the game its tough to have a winning strategy.
