OK, so I was offered a job today, a real job with salary and benefits and all that. I won’t get into the reasons and rationale that I accepted it. But it came with a tight time-frame and about 50 forms to fill out and a whole host of procedural gobbledegook. What a nightmare. I found myself thinking about how over-organized and over-regulated we have become, how much we have come to accept that craziness like this is the norm, how sheep-like we have become. In order to get a job we are willing to sacrifice any semblance of freedom. How did this happen? I think I know but I am interested in your thoughts too.
The preponderance of jobs today in this over-industrialized society seem to be less about people making things we want or need and more about servicing the ever-growing artificial economy. Is anybody making anything anymore? I wonder.
