The Golden Verses Of The Stoic

Seneca and Epictetus refer to the Golden Verses of Pythagoras , which happens to provide a good framework for developing a daily routine, bookended by morning and evening contemplative practices. Zeno of Citium , who founded Stoicism in 301 BC, expressed his doctrines in notoriously terse arguments and concise maxims.  However, Chrysippus, the third head of the Stoic school, wrote over 700 books fleshing these ideas out and adding complex arguments to support them. 

NYPD vs Crime

I know it's a stretch -- but maybe if we don't make people feel like criminals, they won't feel that being a criminal is their only option. Now, I'm sure someone will reach back into the 80s and bring out that worn down belief that 'No one can Make you Feel anything - It is their choice to feel that way...' Bullshit. It's called Marketing, and it is a Multi Billion Dollar industry based on cutting edge technology with a razor wire grip on the human brain. Not only CAN I make you feel anyway I want to - I can do it whether you know I'm trying to or not -- with an accuracy rate of near perfection. And I guarantee you, that being stopped and frisked twice a week -- right out on the street in front of all your neighbors -- affects your emotions and beliefs about yourself.
