NYT 01.26.13: Withdraw Meaningful work, Drive Yourself, or others, Insane (some liberties taken with title)
As I've noted for over a year now, in my assessment, the entire deadly sickness gripping near all cultures now, mostly US, almost done in dooming all creation, is the elimination of virtually all meaningful (necessary to the meaningful life of others) work, on Earth.
This is our Religion, eliminating meaningful work (oh, please don't dismiss this notion easily. Think!) under the names of 'convenience,' 'entertainment,' 'fun,' 'leisure,' 'ease....'
Deadly. DEATHLY. ECOCIDAL. INSANE, and the serious writing, theories, research... by Maslow, Csikszentmihaly, Alfred Adler, Viktor Frankl, Erik Erikson, Tolstoy, Jesus... is EXACTLY this.
Meaningful work has been at the heart of Morality, and
Moral Teachings since well before Jesus, but "The Daily Bread" that Jesus CENTRALLY taught us to Pray for, is EXACTLY and ENTIRELY "Meaningful Work," and with
self-righteous, religious fervor we've been "replacing" it for
all sorts of "reasonable" reasons for 1000's of years, but with a now nearly terminal vengeance, in my lifetime.
And until this my most recent decade I was an appostle of this false, Deadly religion of leisure, in the computing automation industry. I didn't know; I couldn't pull it all together, but I have since.

I strongly suspect that there is only one true Revolution possible for the human species - past, present, future. And the only time it ever has been tried, to my knowledge, is for several decades during and after the life of Jesus. That Revolution? Lived, total, solidarity with the Global Neediest (human and non-human species). "The Golden Rule is to steadfastly refuse to have what millions cannot have," is how Gandhi said it. "Do unto others ALL that you would have them do unto you," is how Jesus Lived it, and how He or his followers, said it.
