I'll start by saying that I am currently unemployed.
While not having a job a has given me time to learn more about what is going on in the effed up world and prioritize what is actually important over
what this screwed up society wants me to believe is important. The problem as stated before is the lack of income because of how the system is setup
and how we "live" our lives being subservient to the system. Without a job and a source of income, things that you would normally take for granted
when you have a source of income become the source of frustration and depression.
What am I going to do to pay my bills? What am I going to eat? How long will I have a roof over my head? Where am I going to be when I don't have
an answer to the previous three questions?
Thinking about those questions makes one have a range of different emotions, depression being one of them for some people. To get out of this
damaging process people will take any job they can get that will pay the bills as soon as they can.
This is no coincidence, the system is setup to do this to us. We struggle to make ends meet with a low paying job, then lose the job and our worlds
get turned upside down. We jump head first into a lower paying job just to ease the struggle of not having one and the cycle perpetuates itself.
"Struggle for the sake of the struggle"
People who don't have these problems are people how have no financial obligations or are financially independent so there is no need for them to
Long ago people used to work to live.
Now we just live to work.
The system is broken and needs fixed, but it isn't going to happen when people who have found stability from a job spend their free time just trying
to de-stress after working for pittance and don't see the way we were all setup for a fall.
All that being said, yes it did feel a bit better to not have to work for that wretched low life scum that fired me in october of last year.
ETA: just skimmed that link about not working and starting an online business. you can't start from no where with no money, for most people that will
come from a job. the thing is pretty callous in its title 'for smart people' implying that people that don't start an online business are dumb. hate
that type of mentality.
