The worst thing about being called a genius is the expectation of others. Once they identify you as a genius, they lustfully scheme how to keep you sitting in a cubicle while they charge a premium hourly rate they can take a fat percent of.
Would any decent person ever consider sticking Einstein or Beethoven in a cubicle? We’re never colonizing outer space if minds are enslaved so fools can make money off them.
But money people have no notion of life outside of money, and therefore all great potential must be spent to accumulate money, not for meaningful activity or to accomplish anything significant. They are empty people furiously filling themselves with garbage so they feel less empty.
They have neither souls nor imagination.
