My version, “If you teach a man to sell fish, he’ll boil the fucking ocean to expand his franchise.”

The most important lesson is teaching people to teach and learn from each other and that there are limits. Civilization is a system that isolates humans from natural limitations and risks. We didn’t evolve for this, so we have to artificially make ourselves limited.

Those who don’t have education or access don’t sense that they can help themselves more through limitations than through unreachable freedoms granted to a few. That’s the core of a society.
