The amount of jobs that only exist to make capitalists wealthier is astounding.
@garfiald Graeber's book "the utopia of rules" is excellent. I haven't read his "bullshit jobs" book yet
@garfiald YouGov did a survey in 2015 that found 37% of British workers think their jobs are meaningless
@Superpig aw no that sounds epic though! I'd love to do that, I should look into training sometime. My brother has basic lifeguard/elementary paramedic training but he's not exactly political
@garfiald that was such a good book and I always recommend reading his interviews because he sort of just cuts the contents of it into digestible pieces, same for the interviews he gave on "Debt"
The amount of jobs which exist for no reason other than to move money around and magically create more for rich people is seriously dizzying. The amount of unproductive labor, the soulless inefficiency, the sheer number of bean counters... I need to go for a walk, sry
@garfiald I'm reading "utopie 21" from aymeric Caron, i don't know if he translated it in english but if you want a pretty good analisys of the society (focused on the french one) i recommend it to you ;) but yeah, a lot of jobs just exist to let a small portion of the population earn a lot of money that we will never see ourselves ... The worst thing is that they do not produce anything
