"lol all humans are actually super biased towards wanting to do work that's just how humans work!"

me, work averse human: guess I'll go be invisible in the corner so you can continue to ignore my existence because it's inconvenient for your narrative about how much work is necessary for a functioning society

if your utopian vision doesn't include reducing the necessity of work for society to function it's shit

"We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting alll the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because,
according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors & people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school & think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along & told them they had to earn a living.”

Richard Buckminster Fuller (1895 β€” 1983)
