The Kamikaze Worker

I was thinking today how politicians, media and thus society make the kamikaze worker the ideal standard for human beings. I would define the kamikaze worker as someone who puts work at the center of their life and above their health, family and society.

I have often questioned the point of this overwork. It seems to me more of one of making the rich richer and social control. Much of the essentials like food have been automated and mechanised. This has increasingly happened in other sectors of the economy. Bullshit jobs are real.

The Bank of England printed £875 billion pounds of currency since the financial crisis in 2008. This wasn’t earned money. Just money to maintain the existing system from going insolvent. There is a big disconnect from the lifestyles at the top to the rest of society.

I don’t know what the answer is but I don’t think it is real living. Many of us aren’t living in the real world. We are consuming the resources of our planet unsustainably. The credit card is a human creation. Earth doesn’t have a credit card. Once something is gone it’s gone.
