You talk a lot about the idea that feminism has become more of an individual identity than a movement in the book, but where do you think this particular idea comes from — this idea that you have to define all of your actions as feminist? A lot of it, historically, comes from insecurity — people are constantly being judged for their politics and being weighed on this scale of righteousness and always being in danger of not measuring up.
Rule #3. Our idea of fairness is self interest
Feminism , among social movements, has been tasked with a lot. One of the early rallying cries of second-wave feminism was the idea that the personal was political.
And yet today, in a very real way, the politically personal is everything from your ability to choose to wax your crotch, as you talked about in the book, to your ability to wear makeup: Society judges people by what they can do for others. Can you save children from a burning house, or remove a tumour, or make a room of strangers laugh? An internal sense of honour and love and duty count for squat. What exactly can you and have you done for the world? Abilities are not prized by their virtue. Whatever admiration society awards us, comes from the selfish perspectives of others. A hard working janitor is less rewarded by society than a ruthless stockbroker.
A cancer researcher is rewarded less than a supermodel. Because those abilities are rarer and impact more people. But in reality, social reward is just a network effect. Reward comes down mostly to the number of people you impact:. Write Harry Potter and the world wants to know you. Unfortunately, the same rule applies to all talents, even unsavoury ones: You may hate this. It may make you sick.
People like to invent moral authority. Our parents tell us this. Our teachers teach us this. Be a good boy, and have some candy. But reality is indifferent. Which unfortunately present day human has not realised his potential to do so.

Why isn't there a stop moment in life? Isn't it equally absurd to think there is a God than to think there isn't one? What is the meaning of life?
“There's nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be...”
It basically means that you shouldn't complain about where you are and regret things you did in the past, because whatever you change in your past, you will still end up in the same place.

So wherever we will land up in future that is not anyone's mistake, it is written before where we are leading to. There is some reason behind us being there, everything happens, happens for a reason So Destiny has planned everything for all of us, we just need to follow its path and live our lives.
There is no need to think that I could have done that, I could have gone that way, I should have said that etc.
