[quote:J. Galt 24448049:MV8yMDE2ODAxXzMzODkwMjI3XzE4MkVFNEI5] Working for the sake of working has now become the ultimate virtue. Everyone has to toil away, even if the work isn't necessary, or doesn't contribute to anything of value for society overall. Even if it leads to destructive ends overall, tis' virtuous to work. The more you work the better a person you are! Just keep chipping away at that pile of rocks! :banana2: [/quote] Are you kidding or being sarcastic? Your statement is plain false. No one has to toil. Many folks have "stuff" they don't really need, cable, internet, cell phone, new(er) car, large house, travel, etc. If one doesn't want to work much it is possible if one's expenses are pared down. Most people don't want to assume responsibility for much of anything including poor choices they've made. Thoreau visited this topic extensively in "Walden", really a must read imho Walden (first published as Walden; or, Life in the Woods) is an American book written by noted transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau. The work is part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and manual for self reliance. Published in 1854, it details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years in a cabin he built near Walden Pond, amidst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, near Concord, Massachusetts.

It has been switched. Now all that is good and right and true centers around money. If you are a good person you should have lots of money. Only poor people are bad and only rich people are good.
Welcome to hell.
