In my childhood I used to believe that professionals are somehow connected with the stuff they work with, and that they really master it like nobody else can, and that they do what they like and want. I thought that programmers have the best computers at their homes, drivers have the best cars and so on. So you if want to own an airplane you be a pilot, this is the right and only way.
I remember when I was told that the famous Soviet aircraft designer had been put to a prison and forced to work there I was astonished indeed. You see, there were so many military fighters constructed by him and named after him, so why didn’t they flew to that building and didn’t bomb its walls to dust?
