You want a job and, and that’s it?
November 24, 2014
Up until approximately the 20th century, when someone collapsed after 14 hours working for a miserable wage, it made a lot more sense to become homeless. At least, you would not have to do anything at all—a personal defense that no labor movement can improve.
This millennial mindset has been disregarded; the modern working culture makes it look as if working for an organization is not an infamy, and for an unconvincing or degrading reason. Being unemployed, even temporarily, is usually seen more indecorous than forgetting about ethics.
People do not take it to the hills anymore; they’d rather shut up, get upset and become absurd and inconstant. There are some who are intoxicated of dignity, distrustful and challenging in organizations where norms are observed and people are looked after. These are the very same people who allow themselves to be talked into mediocrity and trickery—homeless people who lost the habit of fighting and the skills to do it in favor or against it.
