An interesting cartoon about the world of work.
Industrial society will inevitably lead to work which is dull,
repetitious, which renders us as meaningless cogs in a machine where our
functional role is the only thing which
is important, and our humanity, our needs , our emotions are
superfluous and ignored. We become alienated from our true humanity
with a large proportion of our lives diverted to this meaningless
activity called "work" where we constantly clock watch, hoping that 5pm
and the weekend quickly roll by so we can let our hair down. Thus we
are effectively wishing our lives away. All this is somewhat
ameliorated by the camaraderie of the workplace, but all in all
capitalism is deeply inimical to our deepest yearnings and desires.
