Not quite sure I agree with the phrasing, but I do agree with the sentiment. The truth is: society wasn’t always all about careers and “making a living”… but the ones who stayed home, the grandparents and the extended families…. Now we aren’t together the way we used to be. We want money and things to replace who we are and who we love
“”We must 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.””

  2. From facebook@Eden Mabee: Not having a “career” or a job does not imply one does not serve society (or cannot serve society)…. I think part of the obsession over celebrities is that they have made a “career” out of not having a job, because we, as a society, don’t respect work that isn’t making money.

  3. From facebook@Ryan Sawyer: I just don’t see a point in doing something that won’t make me a little scratch…but that’s my opinion. It’s not greed…it’s a desire to have the means to do other things that cost money. I love my job as a parent and get no financial gain from it, but if I have to do something I wouldn’t just up and do for fun….then I’d like some compensation please.
