No, we don't. Cash is artificial. And sooner or later there'll be universal basic income (UBI) in every first world country.

Funnily enough, it literally is the vision of one of the candidate for the french election. And while cash may be artificial, you're buying services and goods with it, and you most likely won't be able to distinguish yourself from others with UBI, unless it is very high for everyone, which is an utopia. While I hate working, I can't help but feel uncomfortable if I'm getting paid doing nothing, and I'm not alone, since a survey shown that 70% of french people would still be looking for some kind of professional activity. I could find it, but meh.




500kg nerds in front of their computer all day for a lifetime is mostly what I meant, and sorry for the bad latin, it's been years since I studied that stuff. It's mostly an insult in french, calling someone a "larve" to describe general uselessness + "leeching".

What do you mean by "distinguish yourself from others"? Why would you want to distinguish yourself from others?

And you feel uncomfortable because you've been conditioned to be a wage slave since you could talk.

Money is artificial and when AI and robots are producing more than we can consume (post-scarcity economy) there's no reason not to give it out for free.

With all the nice things to do in the world, you'd have to have some sort of anhedonia to feel uncomfortable not working. Shit, work out, read a book, write a book, paint a picture, play music, learn, cook, travel, take up a sport, spend more time with friends and family, build something, go camping, visit an amusement park, learn to dance.

But what if you like your job and it improves you as a person, your skills and the world around you?

thread smells a lot like 4chan, their "praise idleness" ideology is full of mistakes

also, although we had some breakthroughs with deep learning I think that it´ll still take some centuries until robots will do the actual majority of the work today, so I wouldn´t place my bets on that happening anytime soon(tm)

tl;dr feeling superior by being useless is stupid and makes you a fat hobo nobody wants, as long as there isn´t impressive dedication, hobbies won´t personally push you as far as jobs can do. You first gotta pick the right job though

So you have no idea what you're talking about yet you feel confident in making predictions? I mean, that's what almost everyone does, but it's still amazing.

Feeling superior by being a wage slave and working (i.e., wasting half of your waking time or more) to increase the profits of your master is stupid and makes you a slave nobody wants (except your master for as long as you can increase his profits, then you're thrown aside like a spent condom).

"Hobbies" can push you as far as a job. Why couldn't they? That makes no sense. Show some scientific backing for this absurd claim.

4chan is leaking again. Wagie memes inc.

I do agree though. Pretty much no one likes working and of those that do, either get a sense of fulfillment because they believe their work is meaningful beyond pure profit (nurses, teachers and innovators [think people like elon musk] for example) or just don't have any imagination and just get stuck in the rut of working. The idea that working is in and of itself meaningful is nonsensical.

But until the robot overlords get here or I strike it rich, going to be a wagie until I can afford to not be.
