If you do not want a man unhappy politically, do not give both sides of an issue to resolve; give him one. Fill people with non-combustible data, slather them with "facts" that they feel empanzinadas, but absolutely "brilliant" as the information. So they will imagine they are thinking, have a sense of motion without moving. And be happy, because facts of that order does not change. Do not put them on shaky ground, like philosophy or sociology, with which to compare their experiences. Therein lies melancholy. Every man capable of disassembling a big screen tv and mount it again, and most can nowadays is happier than any man who tries to use the slide rule, measure and compare the universe, which just will not be measured or compared without the man feel bestial and lonely.
