Your Lifestyle Has Already Been Designed (The Real Reason For The Forty-Hour Workweek)

The real reason for the forty-hour workweek

The ultimate tool for corporations to sustain a culture of this sort is to develop the 40-hour workweek as the normal lifestyle. Under these working conditions people have to build a life in the evenings and on weekends. This arrangement makes us naturally more inclined to spend heavily on entertainment and conveniences because our free time is so scarce.

I’ve only been back at work for a few days, but already I’m noticing that the more wholesome activities are quickly dropping out of my life: walking, exercising, reading, meditating, and extra writing.

The one conspicuous similarity between these activities is that they cost little or no money, but they take time.

"You can manipulate consumers into wanting, and therefore buying, your products. It’s a game."

-

Lucy Hughes, co-creator of “The Nag Factor”

This is only one small example of something that has been going on for a very long time. Big companies didn’t make their millions by earnestly promoting the virtues of their products, they made it by creating a culture of hundreds of millions of people that buy way more than they need and try to chase away dissatisfaction with money.

A Palestinian child reacts after coming back from school to find his house destroyed by the Israeli occupation forces, east of Jerusalem . 

They say Palestinians teach their children to hate. But look at this image. Look. I’d say Israel has to stop giving them reason to.

Colonists can never seem to grasp that they plant the seeds of their own demise with their very hands.
