Lie #1 - Career success is fulfilling. This is the lie we foist on the young.
Lie #2 - I can make myself happy. This is the lie of self-sufficiency.
Lie #3 - Life is an individual journey. This is [a] lie [that] encourages people to believe freedom is the absence of restraint.
Lie #4 - You have to find your own truth. This is the privatization of meaning.
Like #5 - Rich and successful people are worth more than poorer and less successful people. We pretend we don’t tell this lie, but our whole meritocracy points to it.
