I think capitalism's biggest and most successful grift was propagandizing Jobs = Purpose. Really well done. Now how do we unlearn that ridiculous shit and gravitate away from a dying jobs based economy to a Purpose based society :blobcatglaredrink: ?

@denikombucha I feel like something similar to how Dwarf Fortress handled "losing is fun" would work.

Just redefine "Job" to actually mean "Purpose".


All you need to know to fully understand "losing is fun" is where that link actually goes.

@denikombucha enable people to survive, gaining basic necessities like good, while pursuing their purpose. I have so many more books in planning that I could have already written if I didn't have to constantly search for my next dayjob.

@denikombucha don't forget Protestantism, the midwife of capitalist wage slavery.

@denikombucha This is a very strong source of my depression. I hate myself because I feel worthless because I don't have a job.

@tangent youā€™re the only really valuable thing in this worthless economic system.

@denikombucha oh yeah whole libraries could be filled with books on the way that capitalist society turned The Job into almost a religious idol
