One might think that, without realizing it, the power to change from one program to another, without leaving the couch, imperial power equals the Caesars had to decide the life or death of somebody, just by moving your thumb up or down.

Keep in mind that all adults come from a childhood in which naturally possess narcissistic traits, of omnipotence, of selfishness.
It's so hard because mature emotionally infantile narcissism is very resistant to education.
