"We should 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 all 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 and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living."
~ R. Buckminster Fuller
I'll be the first to admit, I knew nothing about Mr. Fuller until I read this and skimmed his bio on Wikipedia. But from this quote I can tell we're on the same page on at least this issue (though I should point out his possible misuse of the term "Darwinian". Darwin's theories, to my knowledge, do not reach into social structures, they only pertain to biology. He's probably referencing "Survival of the Fittest", but again, to my knowledge, that only means a species as a whole)
Money is nice to have, but if you don't, you are powerless and largely voiceless in our society.
If you don't have money, you don't have a roof over your head or a meal in your stomach. Why should that be so in today's society?
As Mr. Fuller says, not everyone NEEDS to work. Why should the woman stuck behind a desk 5 days a week be forced to do so? Why does she need to waste her precious time and effort to provide for her and her family? Money.
If money did not exist she and everyone else would be able to live their own lives free of restrictions. We could travel the world, pursue higher education, pursue our own life the way we and we alone choose.
Why can this never happen? Those who have it will never give up their power or influence to control what they can.
