"We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living."
The world is a competitive market place for ideas and the ideas we choose to live by have consequences. And all of the people who pick broken frameworks like this to be primary influences for their own actions just take themselves out of the competitive marketplace to do the interesting stuff out there that there is to do.
Good for you. But you haven't explained why it's a broken idea, let alone an "idiotic" one.
The entire framework is just code for being unhappy about your job. I'm not saying the job isn't bullshit, at least from the perspective of the person doing it (although it almost certainly isn't from the perspective of the person paying you to do the work), but what next?
It feels like some people want to make subjectively bullshit jobs illegal, which is idiotic.
If you aren't saying we should make it illegal, and you are just venting, then fine, but is venting about not liking you're job really so fascinating that the same article needs to get posted evvery other week.
If your job is bullshit, get a different one, or acknowledge that right now that bullshit job is better than nothing. What other options possibly are there?
That's kind of the whole problem with the epidemic of Bullshit Jobs -- there just aren't all that many jobs out there which don't fall into one of 3 categories:
(2) Low-paying / unstable / insecure
or all of the above.
