Set The Masses Free
The mark of a society’s success is not the employment
of it population to do mundane and useless work, but
the freedom to pursue leisure. To sit in the park and
read the philosophy and feed the birds. Eradicate work
and set the people free.
We pay people for making useless things like watering
cans made of plastic, a work any robot could do.
For this we continue to produce and deplete the world´s
natural resources, for if we do not consume the world
will come to a standstill, or so we are made to believe.
However, those who produce our sustenance the poor
farmers in India, Africa and elsewhere and regarded as
the lowest of the low, are the true friends of our planet.
