Labor Day Blogathon

Work Song --- Nina Simone 

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; show a man how to fish and he’ll hate you for the rest of his life.  --- Stephen Thomas

Work and capitalism.  To me educated in the UsA iit’s the same thing.  I’ts tats and multi-platform environments, USDA choice ribeye roasts, and the frisson of courtroom bombshells.

With the exception of a tiny minority of half-wits, no one believes in work anymore… --- Giorgio Agamben

The hard way is a worthless instrument these days, as obsolete as a roofing specialist in a world without sky.  There is no honor to Sisyphus; Camus is wrong.

The horse was created to pull and carry, the bull to plow, the dog to keep watch and hunt; man, however, was born to embrace the world with his gaze. --- Cicero

With his gaze.  Doesn’t sound like work to me.

They say hard work never hurt anybody, but I figure why take the chance.--- Ronald Reagan
