One of the biggest curses of popular proprietary software is that people expect (demand?) #FOSS alternatives to work exactly the same way and replicate every feature in an identical way.

One of the biggest curses of people is that they look for the easiest solution and not necessarily the right one.

"Strangely, the crowd is never ruled by itself, but is guided and governed by a few. Crowds become habituated to modes of non-thinking and non-questioning, even about the most simplistic and trivial commonplace issues. Being diverted by bread and circus, they lose their autonomy and creativity and become incapable of looking beyond appearances." - From The Disobedient Indian by Ramin Jahanbegloo.

These gems are in the preface and introduction - am going to enjoy this read.

"Dissent, more than being a simple manner of protesting, is an invitation to awareness. Through its art of questioning, the real task of dissent is to challenge and defeat the twin corruptions of democracy: imposed conformism and normalised complacency." - From The Disobedient Indian by Ramin Jahanbegloo

Not university and institutions.
