Does work make you strong, or does it make you sick?

work-clean-and-soberEverywhere you go in America, people tell you how happy they are with having a capitalist economy! They say they can’t imagine it being any other way, in fact, and that Capitalism is Nature’s very own best way. That’s what it comes down to when you are brainwashed from birth, kept ignorant and uninformed all your life, and YES, when you keep yourself just a tad bit deluded. So, does work under capitalism make you strong, or does it make you sick? After all, you spend a lot of your lifetime at work, do you not? I think that you know the answer already, don’t you? Work makes you sick!

It doesn’t have to either, because what makes work a sickening experience for people today is class society. We’re like a herd of chimpanzees with it, and just like they do, we have a murderous pecking order that can be dangerous to an individual’s health. True, humans add money to their pecking order, and chimps do not, but some humans horde the wealth to themselves, horde the power to themselves, and then tell all others to go fuck themselves. Basically just like the powerful chimp might do to other chimps with the necessities of life needed for their species. Those with the wealth and power call this setup: FREEDOM, LIBERTY, JUSTICE, and so on… They are full of bullshit though.

In our capitalist society there is great pressure on all of us to declare ourselves HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY!!!!!!!! Why are you depressed, they will ask? You need counseling! You need some medication! You need a change in philosophy! And so on and so on and so on. You need JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But work in capitalist society makes us sick. Not like work once did back in more primitive times, where work actually… believe it or not… made people happier. Hard to imagine that nowadays…

Before some numbskull writes to tell us we need to get a job, or get a different job, or says any of the other things that numbskulls always say when it is mentioned that work makes one sick (times of unemployment or not), here is something a numbskull ought to read: Survey says work really is hazardous to your health

Hey what a surprise! Only 20% say that the job is killing them? There are just so many, many, many people who are dishonest with themselves, and others. These cowards don’t have the courage of their convictions to tell people the truth about their work, simply because they think, that others think, that all should smile, grin, and chirp about how happy their society is making them. But how many folk are on antidepressants, tranquilizers, alcohol, coffee, soda pop, food! –yeah food– as medication for their unhappiness in the work environment? Get a clue, People! Your job is simply hazardous to your health!

Oh well… Some people just seem bred to deny reality all the time. Go figure? Work is so fucked up under capitalism that many prefer fantasy to reality.

  1. Simply because you aren’t a winner in our capitalist economy doesn’t mean the whole system needs to be thrown out the window. Yes, the system needs to be revamped to be more inclusive, but your dream of a socialist utopia is fanciful at best.

    I’m looking forward to Compassionate Capitalism.

    I can use more exclamation points than you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    And don’t even get me started with question marks?

  2. Bravo, Marie! I’m quite happy in my job, but then again, I actually worked and paid attention in high school and college, so I could go to law school. And I had the foresight to see what the politicians would do to the economy, so I specialized in bankruptcy. Turns out to have been a good choice.

    And I did learn in some English class along the way that you can’t form a question just by adding a question mark to the end of a declarative statement?

  3. It’s unfortunate that neither Messrs. Marie or Michael want to see the forest for Tony’s exclamation points.

    Tony’s exclamation/point was that “work,” for those of us not so fortunate to be able to amuse ourselves for a living, has become insufferably debilitating, while representing itself as something completely other.

    I think both your comments confirm Tony’s observation: the disdainful hoity-toity remain willfully unsympathetic, and won’t be budged for either!!! or?

  4. Well, the picture of the Slave Crew and their Pig Overseers is enough to make you sick.

    Unless you own stock in CCA or some other Slave Labor Rental agency.

    I bet that PIG in the right foreground is getting his fill of PowerTrip.

    Chickenshit son of a bitch.
