Human beings generally are offended when animal behaviors are ascribed to them.
But, take even a casual glance, and it is easy to notice, especially in the aggregate, animal behavior is mostly what us exhibited. But, we don’t want it to be that way, right? So, the thinking brain is always assumed to be in charge. Seeing animal, or instinctive behavior can be noticed just by looking at some parallels.
Suppose a person sees a dog and wants to make use of its time and energy, in other words own it. What does a person do? He offers it a treat. With a few more treats, the dog bonds with the human and becomes loyal. The dog will then serve the human in countless ways that are worth for more than the treats. The dog will remain loyal even after a man whips it with a stick.
Suppose, Facebook want you to subscribe, so that they can make use of you as a target for advertising. What does Facebook do? It offers you a treat, which turns out to be a page where you can advertise yourself and all you do in the world.
Both dogs and humans will undergo substantial stress and hardship before giving up a treat.
Facebook can take away a human’s First Amendment rights, manage his opinions and expose him to propaganda from the state. This is abuse that rises to a higher level than whipping a dog. So, what does the human do? By no means is he going to leave Facebook. Facebook is the source of his treats.
