They wish to make a lot of money. In Europe every American student if more every American adult is regarded as someone who is just out to make a lot of money really, what 16%, 16% of these students regarded their main goal and concern in life to make a lot of money I'm quoting literally, make a lot of money. And you know what the top cat... the top category ... you say category or "cat-egory"? What do you say? Category was among... you ... excuse me, but I... I know I'm speaking in marvelous accent without the slightest english You know, you know what the top category was? 78% of these American youngsters were concerned as they expressed it themselves with finding a meaning and purpose in their lives so this is realistic view of man. And you know... you won't believe it gray... gray hair, my age I started to take flying lessons recently you know what my flying instructor told me? If you're starting here, wish to get here... say... east... heading for this... and you have a crosswind you will drift and you will land here so you have to do what the pilots call crabing -- he told me -- C, R, A, B: crabing You have to head for north of this... airfield and you have to fly that way, you see? if you head -- in this direction -- if you ahead in here... above this airfield then you will actually land here but if you head for here, you are landing here this hold also for man... I would say if we take man as he really is we making worst but if we overestimate him it's premature your applause... you will soon know why if we... if we seem to be idealist and we are overestimating ... overrating man and looking at him that high... here above you know what happens? we promote him to what really can be So we have to idealist in a way because then we wind up as the true, the real 'is' and you know who has said this? if we take man as he is, we making worst but if we take man as he should be we making capable becoming what he can be this was not my flight instructor, this was not me this was Goethe, he said this verbally and now you will understand why I in one of my writings once said... this is the most ... maxim and motto for any psicotherapeutic activity so if you don't recognise a young man's will to meaning ... man's search for meaning you make him worst...you make him dull you make him frustrated, you still add and contribute to his frustration ... while, if you presupose in this man ... in this so called criminal or juvenile delinquent or drug abuser, or so forth... there must be a what do you call it? a spark... a spark of search for meaning let's recognize this... let's presupose it and then you will elicit it from him and you will make him become what he in principle is capable of becoming
