I feel nobody NEEDS to work, but wants to work because they want to pay their bills, because they want to have a roof over their head, electricity,
running water, etc.. Now, if you are sincerely unable to work, then there is not much that can be done for that.
But working also serves a greatee purpose: You are, in your own way, not only helping others through whatever work you do, but you are experiencing a
kind of concrete satisfaction in working. This is something that cannot be obtained by refusing to work simply because of laziness.
There is also much morall wrong with not working by choice. You are taking money away from people who DO work, which hurts them and their family. This
indirectly obtained karna, I feel, is a terrible one, because it can be avoided easily by making a simple decision to work.
Wish I knew what country YOU live in, because in my country, you cannot afford to NOT work.
Even if your home was PAID for, and you surprisingly have no bills to pay for,
and you grow all of your own food, and live the simple life, you
STILL HAVE THAT THING CALLED PROPERTY TAXES that you are forced to pay.
SO, therefore, you have NO CHOICE but to find a way to earn money. And the more people try to earn a living on their own, the more regulations and
laws appear that PREVENT you from doing so.
In the U.S., a commoner MUST work. It would be silly to assume that it is a CHOICE by us to do the work of 6 employees at 60 hours a week on our jobs
by choice. Thats flat out SILLY. Things are MUCH DIFFERENT than the golden days of past where you can do the job of ONE employee, and work decent
hours for a decent wage and have a LIFE. LONG GONE are those days...
And If we are LUCKY enough to actually go on a vacation somewhere nice (besides sitting home just relaxing) once every several years, that is a
SO, we certainly do not work and earn a living this way by choice, BELIEVE THAT.
U.S. Commoners = slaves. Thats why the WEALTHY folks wealth have gone up THRU THE ROOF in modern times and our lives and wages have gone down the
toilet. We ARE modern day slaves.
