When you've got fixed things like property-ownership, institutions, attachment to "your health", that can make it harder for that process to play itself out, which is why we have this thing called "mental illness". However, i've found it important to stay an egoist, to not throw out the baby with the bath water when i find something which offends or scares me.

i don't find amazon to be any sort of a reflection of "humility", but the humility is knowing that i can't take a molotov cocktail down to a fulfillment center and expect it to disappear....Also, knowing that there are all sorts of foolish people who have prime memberships with the intent of saving money, lol. I've seen Jeff Beezos speak in interviews, to me he's just a megalomaniac with a very calm affect.
