The analogy is: people seeing the inequities of an institutionalised mechanism, but going along with it, and even defending it, anyway.

But if you felt the need to create an(other) id here just to say what you've said, the above sentence will be equally lost on you.

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority". I knew I was on the right track :)
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    It sound like its working perfectly and as intended.
    An institutionalizing mechanism that tricks the monk into thinking this number has value. With inequities that force them to respect the XP system or else face the punishment.

    What happen to just helping people and sharing information?
    If the names of the levels of monks where reversed would the XP still be appealing to you?
