Re: Human beings were not meant to live lives revolving around work, bills, the stock market, or breaking news.
I love this post, because I think about this everyday.

I'm 22 years old, I work as an IT analyst for a world-wide shipping company in Houston Texas.

I work 14 hours on Sunday, 14 hours on Monday, and 12 hours on Tuesday. I'm off wednesday morning for four days then I do it all over again. NIGHT SHIFT mind you...

Even though I work 3 days straight (LONG HOURS...) and I am off 4-days I feel like time is just whisking away from me. I'm tired all week for wracking hell on my brain for three days straight.

It's sad really, people put their ambitions aside, dreams and thoughts of adventure aside because money rules the world. I got a girlfriend, and an apartment, a nice truck blah blah blah but who gives a fk.

I'd rather be sailing the open seas with my woman battling somalian pirates or some bull***.

It's all a dream then you die, unless you find a way to wake up.

Re: Human beings were not meant to live lives revolving around work, bills, the stock market, or breaking news.
(OP) I have to disagree; I would rather be wrong, but we have been programmed genetically and culturally to fall into step, and march along with the crowed like good soldiers. The system works as well as it does because this is how it is; buck the system, pay a price for nonconformity.

When asked, I tell my young friends that everything comes at a price, including relationships. If you want to live life on your own terms expect to give up having a traditional family. Most people willingly accept the cost or don't realize that there is a cost until later; and some are happy with their decision. Others "Lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them." - Henry David Thoreau

But then .... Some will against all odds succeed in being a free soul. Just keep in mind that this freedom does not guarantee happiness or that you'll be happier than those who you may consider to be a "Sell Out". Roll the dice, do the best you can, and in the end hopefully you'll be able to say, "I did the best I could."
And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams - Acts 2:17 (KJV)

 Quoting: Hermittao


But the system isn't working... Families no longer stay together because mom can no longer afford to stay home and take care of the children, and watch the house. Now man and women both have to work, and if they are lucky, their schedules will work out but most likely they will have separate schedules, which leads to a relationship that doesn't really exist. So after a couple years, they realize they've grown apart and no longer see eye to eye, so then divorce happens... Then you got all these little boys growing up without dad, and they turn into girlie men, and now we are seeing the effects of this. The system is fucking broke and don't even think for a second that it's working just fine, because until we stand up and change shit, this is only the beginning. Shit is only gonna get worse. When the 40 hour work week first became the norm, they said in 20 years we'd only have to work 15 hour weeks. It is a statistical fact that now we do as much in a 12 hour week that we used to do in 40 hours. So we are more productive but we are working way more hours. We'll be working 60 hour weeks in the future just to get by if we keep this up. Go on you little worker drone, just keep doing what they say.

Re: Human beings were not meant to live lives revolving around work, bills, the stock market, or breaking news.
Hm, I do think in a way work was meant to be a big part of our lives. And I certainly wouldn't just wan to be a moocher off of other people's backs. It's not like animals have grocery stores you know, and there's a reason we don't let them go in there and just haul off a piece of steak either... But they work for their food in their own way. We are meant to as well.

However, our work was meant to be:
- fulfilling (at least somewhat)
- only part of the time

The problem with these jobs like working as a computer programmer in a cubicle for a 12 hour day 5 days a week, which, after you account for travel, errands, chores and sleep, is pretty much your life right there, is that it's so far removed from the work that we would enjoy. Even breaking your back farming all day felt more satisfying than sitting in a grey cube all day inputting meaningless nothing in a hurry to meet meaningless deadlines so the company can make even more money...

(Well, (I'm sure there are some people who just LOVE computer programming... but not for 12 hours a day every day... I guess there are even some who also don't have any home life, they WANT work to be life... but I don't think that's healthy, they're avoiding life.)

For the rest of us, we need:

- Fewer hours of work (Not for more hours of TV, but for more hours of quality life: hobbies, travel, friends, family... all that)

AND/OR

- Better quality work. (NOT as in paycheck, but as in something you really love, even if it maybe pays less)


So GLPers, how do we do that?

Some ideas:

- Part-time. Are you finding yourself shorter on time than money? Even if not, maybe there's a way you can cut down on your spending, and live a simpler life. Life was supposed to get easier as technology advanced, not harder, so why are we working longer hours than ever? Why does everyone have to work full time (plus overtime for a lot of people)? Part-time might be enough to get you the money you need to go out and live your life.

- ENTREPRENEURSHIP! Be your own boss, do what you like, set your own hours. Of course, it's not easy... but if you have the mindset for it, it's... awesome.


Ok, there's gotta be more than two ways to do this thing. I guess some people buy a farm and live off of it? So that's another then...

- Self sustainable farm

Umm,

- Find one thing you're really good at that can make you a lot of money quickly, do it like crazy, and then retire and live simply so that you can stay retired permanently... whether it's a pop song or lacrosse or an app or being the world's first flame-throwing harpist...

What else, people?

I would like to build a small cottage or house somewhere on land without having to "buy land" or go into debt just to fulfill a wish to build a cottage of my own.

I don't know about you but it seems absurd to have to "buy land" i mean land is available all over our planet earth!

just don't bother someone's house, that's all. build where you want to as along as you're not in someone's yard. and make yard reasonable size not acres acres so someone don't have space to build their house.

I agree. The worst thing about land ownership, is the usurous mortgages with which our lovely governments allow the banks to keep us down.

Even the USDA Rural Housing Service (which they now call just 'Rural Service') charges 7% interest on loans which are supposedly meant to help people with SHELTER.

Same government allows banks to pay practically NO interest on savings accounts.

If you become sick and can't pay the mortgage, the government allows shady Nazi doctors to get away with lying about your case, so that you will assuredly be denied disability or any other kinds of financial relief.

So, if you become too sick to work and have no income, no family who can or will help you, etc. -- you are going to find yourselves evicted from the homes you've loved and worked years for, and join the rest of the 'homeless' masses.

The homeless are those poor, dirty, hungry, and cold people who made the mistake of becoming aged or ill. They're the ones Society claims deserve to suffer.

That's inhuman. People would be arrested for treating their dogs so viciously.

Re: Human beings were not meant to live lives revolving around work, bills, the stock market, or breaking news.
Another bad thing about our economic systems (mainly corporatism) is that they're so very wasteful of resources, destructive of the environment, and anti-productive.

In a word, they're sad. Shameful. But the reason they exist is because of malignant greed, mindless pleasure-seeking, and materialistic values.

Personally, I am easily pleased: simple shelter, food, water, fuel for the fire, clean air and soil, peace and quiet, a garden, and lots of free time to pursue my interests (which mostly involve exercise, reading, and industrious pastimes like sewing or cleaning house) is enough for me.

I'm not interested in impressing my neighbors by owning all the latest gadgets and machines, the most perfect lawn, latest fashions, etc.

I'd prefer to see homeless and poor people sheltered, not kicked around all over the place.

Employers, bureaucrats, 'professionals' (like doctors and lawyers) and the Chamber of Commerce have too much power over us. They're allowed to exploit the 'labor force'.

But in destroying our lives, they're also putting themselves out of business. They're either too dumb to know it, or too caught up in the pursuit of instant gratification to care.

I'm seriously thinking of doing this.

Living my life on my own terms out of modern society.

I'm thinking of back packing a tent / some water / supplies and just go out in the desert to survive . (only deserts where I'm at) but I'm sick from the stresses of modern day life, I just don't want to play this freaking game of ass kissing no one has the right to tell me what I should do or not except God, gods land is large and if I can't find my way in this land I'll go make my way in another land and try to live .
 Quoting: night8fox 13729490


I am right there with you buddy! No bullshit.

but, you just cant do it. well, maybe for awhile. but then you are going to want some pussy. and she aint going out into the middle of the desert.

i have alread checked out mentally. its just my physical body going through the motions. i take a job, knowing i wont stay with it. i will be fired or leave in a few years on the job. i just do it for the cash. i save up all my cash so i cant get by for a year without any job. -- but, i do want to get married and have kids someday. then, well, i really will be trapped in the system.

there is hope for guys like me. trapped in this system that is killing me. i see people doing it all the time. the trick is you have to get some cash. somehow, someway. work the system and save up a shitload of cash. then....you have options. people are moving out into the country and small towns and living a more simple life. i see the older generations doing this. yeah, u could call it retirement. but it really isnt retirement. its just a new chapter. sort of an off-the-grid chapter...

All I want is a small sailboat for fishing/fun, and an acre of land to grow food and live on, but last time I checked, nobody's giving either of those away at the moment. Work is the only viable means for me to get something that I can exchange for what I want. (money) So that's what I'll do until something better comes along.

We are supposed to be living in a community with a job that makes us useful and important and not sick in the head. I have children to raise and it is an important job, but we are so broke all the time and I have so little hope left.

I do not make it a regular habit of doing that.
