An individual’s desires are not under one’s control. They are determined by society. If we compare the historic Papuans with modern people, we can clearly see that the development of a person determines one’s desires and pleasures.
Question: Why is a person under the illusion that these are precisely one’s own desires?
Answer: A person does not know anything else. One was created in this, developed in it, and therefore feels that it is one’s own. What does one’s own mean? In fact, he is like puppet, filled with certain desires and small programs, and it exists like that.
Question: Do you think it is important to come to the realization that society dictates all of my desires for me?
Answer: A person doesn’t have their own desires, everyone should know this. Desires are determined by society, the environment. By changing the environment, I can change these desires.
