Work

To understand work I first looked at the ants, who work so hard they are called worker ants, as if they exist in a permanent state of work. They are just like the bees, the worker bees, protecting the queen of their hive. Such short leisure time in such short, pitiful lives.

I looked at the rat. There is no worker rat so they must not work as hard, but they scurry at night, running from trash heap to trash heap. Perhaps they know leisure more than the ant knows leisure, but so much time they have to spend to forage for food—and so scared they are, trying to outwit man and his cruel traps.

I looked at the lion. The lazy lion, lazy without a doubt, relaxing in the shade, sleeping, licking his paws, resting between meals. The little cubs who know nothing but play and the king lion who lets the women do all the work of the hunt. The lion, I’m assured, knows much less work than the ant, the bee, and the rat.

I looked at the elephant. Even lazier! Sucking in water by the pond, always bathing and snacking on greens from the trees. But alas, elephants and lions are not very smart animals. Smarter than the ant, the bee, and the rat, for sure, but not as smart as the others.

I looked at the gorilla. Man’s little brother. But he’s the laziest of them all! Fucking and eating all day, cleaning the fleas off his fur and scratching his ass in the jungle without a care in the world. How much time would I have to sit and wait to see him break a sweat!

I looked at my fellow man. With such large brains they must have figured out how to work even less. But wait—he is like the ants and the bees! One third of his waking life into his labor; labor for another—labor he hates! What a twist of fate, a horrible mistake—what an unhappy and busy lot! How lucky is the queen who see the fruits of his labor—what a life for her!

If only the gorilla could laugh, he would surely laugh at the human, who has decided to strain and bend his back lower than him. And laugh he does. The gorilla, you see, does not have to ask to take a vacation. But the human, the poor human—he must bow his head ever so slightly and speak with a soft, gentle voice, and he must ask permission, and hope that it is granted. He must always please his queen.

I see what you’re getting at but, I’d have to disagree with the analogy on some points. Us humans certainly don’t have it as bad as ants or bees. I even think we have a better deal than the lions. When was the last time you and your friends formed a pack and hunted wilder beasts?

Despite the average work week of 40 hours, this is nothing compared to ants who spend there whole day, aside from sleep, working. Lets break it down.

168 hours in a work week
56 hours of sleep p/week (assuming 8hrs p/night)
40 hours of work (typical American work week)
72 hours of free personal time

So, looking at the math, less than a quarter of our time is spent working for the man, the rest is sleep and whatever else it is we do.

Now, it’d certainly be nice to work even less than that. I think that’s what we all strive for, after all who the hell wants to work at all?!

However, aside from that, I think the real issue is not how much or little we spend working, but how we are using our free time for personal development…or for creating a means to cut those 40 hours down even further. I think it’s more a matter of perspective on how humans manage time.

You’re looking at wrong examplars. You should get (1) new friends, or (2) new mentor.

Fresh out of b-school, I found a mentor who spent his week listed below. He said “go away.” I wouldn’t go away, hounded him, til he showed me the ropes:

168 hours in a work week; $350,000 income.
————————–
56 hours of sleep per week
20 hours of work
72 hours of personal time (running, getting coffee, flying to w-coast, etc.)
2 hours walking his dog
5 hours fucking
3 hours making arrangements to go party in LA
5 hours surfing the internet
5 hours driving to airports, looking for something to do

Work is not so bad. It can be satisfying. Of course, I’m in a creative field where I’m doing work that I often enjoy. The jobs most people have do not generally give a sense of accomplishment.

The thing about leisure is that some people do for fun what other people do for a living, and vice versa (for example, sex). People are often deeply resentful about what they must do vs. what they want to do.

Humans are conditioned while they are air conditioned.

Everything is built and rebuilt on the labors of those before us – even wisdom. The battle of conditioning versus a mans life is neccessarily engaged with the others in culture who have bought into the system, as they have been organized to.

It’s rarely black and white, but I see in your writng the struggle to remain independent and not be assimilated into the “betatude” or slave away for the corporate world, who get the largest chunk of income by far at the top – and get the most paid vacations too.

As you are still relatively young, now is the perfect time to explore and dig in to a mindset that will get you what you want. Pussy, freedom of action, a wide social network, cash, and someday something even bigger – even if that is only a good wife and kids and an acceptable job – because what you’ll want when you are old and rich will be grandkids to play with.

And of course there is no guarantee that the U.S. isn’t going to miss a major recession/ depression soon.

Keep in mind that the conditioning you see everywhere – never mentions – or even allows for -deep discussion in a policy affecting way (action) – to reverse the flow of capital from the many to the few. That is one of the only economic constants you can count on right now.

Currently the CEOs, wealthy shareholders, golden parachuters, are owning/conditioning the prides so to speak. It’s almost like the Lion is being kept in the Hamptons or if you really want to put you finger on it – they have their own fully staffed, with 24/7 security, islands – and in public they push the line that lions have it rough, etc.

Well, one thing has changed. It used to be that the wealthy kings and nobles were also the warriors and generals who protected the tribe/city/nation, and could legitimize their claim to their wealth this way.

Nowadays wealth can buy “protection,” and the wealthy can emulate the lives of kings and queens without the risks that came with being old royalty.

Just a correction, elephants are known to be highly intelligent.

There was ALWAYS lots of work. Roosh seems to be believing the “garden of eden” view of nature where early man got to lounge around all day under a tree, not work, pick fruit from trees…just like the gorillas. But on the contrary, life was short and harsh and there really was no purpose to life other than surviving long enough to reproduce and worshiping some nature good. There was no such thing as agriculture, so man had to work constantly as a hunter/gatherer and constantly be prepared to defend your tribe against marauding tribes looking to steal your food and rape your women. You probably spent every waking moment of your day either looking for food and water, repairing your thatch hut in your village, worshipping nature gods and fighting other tribes.

I sure as hell don’t envy that type of life and thank god we have evolved to the point that we don’t have forage around looking for food.

Work per se doesn’t suck. Doing work that is unmeaningful sucks. Feeling like you are working to make someone else rich while you barely get raises sucks. But you know, it’s all relative. Someone in a 3rd world country would take an average “shitty” American job in a heartbeat and be happy to take it. We Americans put a huge expectation on jobs, that not only is a job to give you money and stability, but it must also be self-actualizing and bring you meaning in life. Few jobs will ever be able to do that. Even doing something you like at the moment may get old after awhile, something I am starting to realize in my career.

7 Hope That’s been going on ever since civilizations began. Nothing has really changed.

Well Hope, one other thing HAS changed :

“For every 1 dollar in income that each taxpayer in the bottom 99% of Americans saw in income growth betwenn 1970 and 2000, each of those in the top 1/100 of one percent earned $7500.00”

So 99% managed a real gain of 2710. in thirty years of hard work while the others gained $20,328,482.00 –

Although that amounts to maybe 1/10 of Mrs. McCains wealth – That also explains why they really don’t have any idea how many homes – planes – jets they have, what kind of cars they own, or how many servants they have.

If you graph it – everyone (99% anyway) have a gain of 1/8 of an inch or so in a bar graph and the ultra-wealthy 1/100 of the top 1% have a bar that exceeds that small blip by 62 FEET!

These are real figures. source: “Perfectly Legal” by David Cay Johnston

Keep in mind that the Forbes Annual Billionaire List vastly underreports the true extent of wealth concentration and the numbers of ultra-wealthy, and purposely overestimates the wealth of many others on the list to mislead public opinion – because it works.

Where are you getting this? I am simply stating that wealth has always followed the distribution system of bottom to top, and that this has not really changed. Further, although conditions for the average American is superior to that of the average peasant, the peasants still outnumber the Americans.

The people at the top have tremendous wealth, but that does not mean I’m ungrateful to be an average American, working my desk job and having my luxuries. I don’t want more than what I have, so I don’t really envy the top 1%.

At the same time, it’s good to have a firm grasp on what’s going on, and ask yourself “Will I lose what I have worked for?” Getting the rug pulled out under you because the ultra rich need to be just a bit richer would kind of suck. Wouldn’t you agree?

Expect more free trade, lower taxes for corporations, more record oil company profits. I think Obama at least has the common person in mind. But I’m not feeling hopeful he will win. If even 10% of the country is too racist to vote for a black man(and I think it’s higher than that), then the election will go to McCain. Unfortunately, because Obama is about the closest thing we’d ever get to an honest president with a clean history.

I’d say the last 8 years or so the average person pays 2x more for health insurance – 3x more for gasoline – 2x more for electricity – college has doubled – home prices have more than doubled but are CRASHING HARD – and food is all over the place but even the good hot dog buns for cookouts have doubled.

So do the governments inflation numbers reflect this – hmmm?.. NO

BTW average American home EQUITY has now fallen and home equity is THE #1 measure of wealth for most Americans.

Oh – and the national debt has skyrocketed in the last 8 years and you’ll have to pay for your growing share of that every year for the rest of your life.

If you are comparing to peasants then you are missing the real events happening NOW by many hundreds of years

The average wealth of most Americans and America is declining – the wealthiest here are (and have been) off-shoring capital in other currencies and commodities in Geneva, Caymans, tax-havens, etc.

Most ( 95% ) of American wage earners are experiencing an acute shortage of capital as there is a recession colliding inflation and with the declining currency, the collapse of available credit, exploding foregn debt, trade deficits, and the huge off budget “debt bombs” that are about to explode after the current administration takes off.

Gorillas and lions only have it easy when they are males, but only ALPHA males, which takes fighting and good genetics. The beta male majority live shitty lives. Also at some point the alphas WILL age and get their asses whipped and replaced by a younger alpha. At that time they will probably wander off injured and die.

And saying ants work all the time is like say people who fuck “work” all the time. Ants are doing what they do to propagate their genes through their sister, the queen. Just like people fuck to propagate their genes.

Perhaps “working” gives ants the same great subjective feeling, which is what motivates them to do it all the time.

I know people from my high school who are self-made millionaires (one did real estate and is now off-shoring that), but they are a far cry from the multi-billionaires.

Personally, I don’t care for that kind of wealth. But I do care about how the money I have saved in the bank is losing its value, and rapidly. I care about how corruption is fucking up the infrastructure in which I want to have children, like education and social security.

What a whiney assed bunch of children with an intense sense of entitlement.

Your own sense of extreme entitlement is blinding you from the fact that there are little people out there, people who aren’t as smart as you, who don’t have a college degree, and who still want to make a livable wage.

Those little people fix the roads we walk and drive on, build the buildings we work in, drive the trucks that deliver the food to the stores, and the lot of them working keep society functioning.

If the top 1% of the world dropped dead tomorrow, the world would go on just fine, after making a good show of mourning. If the average worker can no longer make a good living, you’re going to have a lot more problems… oh wait, but there’s outsourcing. The economy is global now, and there are other markets.

Civilization is always more fragile than people think.

“What a whiney assed bunch of children with an intense sense of entitlement.”

It’s funny that what we call “a sense of entitlement” in America, supposedly something to be ashamed of, is the norm in the rest of the industrialized world. In the war year, people like you would’ve fought against social security and watch the elderly wither away in poverty because you hate a “sense of entitlement”.

“You’re not a multi-millionaire? Cry me a river. What risks have you taken in life to make that money? What risks have you taken to achieve your life dreams? What effort have you put out at all?”

Logic should tell you that everyone cannot be a millionaire no matter how many risk they took and no matter how hard they try. You can’t have a society of all chiefs captains and no grunts, it simply doesn’t work that way. Capitalism is a pyramid with room for very few on top. Of course it’s not necessary for everyone to be a millionaire, that’s fine with me, but that’s why we have a middle class, so that your average Joe can still have a house, a livable wage, adequate education for his kids, food, be able to go to the doctor if he’s sick. What we’ve seen in the last few decades is an economy where things are getting ever more expensive, while wages are stagnant for the average person, meaning they are actually going in the hole. Then you find out that CEOs of banks that are failing are getting $60,000,000 golden parachutes and Exxon-Mobile in one year makes more profit than probably all the sub-saharan African countries combined. And that these same companies lobby your president to not regulate the oil industry. You really should look at a history of wealth in this country. I’m not communist at all, I don’t believe there should be no rich or that the rich shouldn’t be rewarded for hard work. But at a certain extreme, it gets to be unnerving, because I think we’re slowly heading in the direction of Brazil or Mexico where you have the 5% elite at the top driving Maseratis and corrupting and lobbying the system to work to their advantage, and then you have everyone else clipping coupons just trying to get by. I don’t want that type of society. I want the type of society we had in the 1950s where a CEO made 20x the salary of his average employer(or like it is in Japan now), rather than the 500x it’s at now. If that’s a “sense of entitlement” then so be it.

“You do realize who the hell pays the taxes in this country, right? Sure as fuck not you.”

We all pay taxes. Obviously the 95% of has most the money will pay the most. But they also benefit the most and the taxes they pay are much smaller percent of their income than the little guy pays. If gas goes up a dollar tomorrow, the average Joe is hurting. The top 5% doesn’t even notice.

“And by the way, Obama is AS smarmy as every other politician out there. He will lose, because half the democratic party doesn’t think he can do the job.”

Obama is about the closest thing as we’ll get to an honest and principled politician. He’s not perfect, but the guy is a saint compared to who we have in office now. People claim he hasn’t had enough experience, but in my opinion that means he’s had less time to get entangled with lobbyist and fewer IOUs.

Hope wrote “If the top 1% of the world dropped dead tomorrow, the world would go on just fine, after making a good show of mourning. If the average worker can no longer make a good living, you’re going to have a lot more problems.”

Actually, I think that at least since the Industrial Revolution, the top 1% has made a pretty big difference in how we live.

E.g., this discussion is being conducted on the Internet, courtesy of some clever ideas like band theory, zone melting, IC photolithography, and packet switching. I think such things would probably have been developed much more slowly if the top 1% of the world didn’t exist. See also affordable reliable automobiles and telephones, the Green Revolution, the computerized logistics revolution, and a few other things which affect productivity and quality of life.

(The top 1% in technical work isn’t the same as the top 1% in income. But there’s a significant amount of overlap. Also, the two 1% groups are coupled in another way. It is easy to dream of suppressing the top 1% in income while still efficiently motivating and exploiting the work of the top technical 1% for one’s own goals. Realizing the dream in practice seems to be harder.)

Roosh wrote “The europeans killed them [the natives of the Americas] from their diseases, which came from agriculture and urban living.” Actually, the natives themselves had some impressive agriculture and cities: _1491_ is a fascinating recent book on this and other things. And the European disease pool was so vicious that it clobbered even less-concentrated native groups. Likely its relative viciousness wasn’t just because of European agriculture and cities, but also because the Europe/Asia/Africa ecosystem is somewhat bigger and includes all of man’s close evolutionary relatives (whose diseases sometimes jump to man).

I would have to point out the Japanese example brought up by another commenter. The disparity of extreme wealth disparity between the CEOs and the top technical workers is smaller there. The top managers in Japan also work extremely hard, though that is unsurprising since the culture is filled with workaholics.

Hard work is an end unto itself for the Japanese, and recognition for that work — the prestige and influence — are viewed upon as just as important, if not more so, than the monetary reward.

It’s a different culture, of course, but your sights are very narrow if you believe that you can only motivate people with money.

“You do realize who the hell pays the taxes in this country, right? Sure as fuck not you.”

right – fuck you back “anonymous expert”

If the people making the most money actually paid the taxes at the tax rate of people making even 80k there wouldn’t be a discussion going on about the crisis in most peoples households and the recession.

Recently Warren Buffet explained publicly that he easily pays a much lower tax rate than his secretary, and we know he is one of the most public billionaires. Most ultra-wealthy are loath to have anyone know anything about them.

The top 1% own roughly 42.5% of the wealth in the US. That is capital that the 99% remaining will never have. Add to that the inclination of the wealthy to always want to add more to their portfolios. 99% don’t get the loopholes or the golden parachutes.

The main problem is certainly the enormous amount of tax breaks that have been (legally) engineered by the wealthy employers of the lobbyists who are adding in the very effective LOOPHOLES to the U.S. tax code. It doesn’t even matter what the tax rate is when LOOPHOLES take their income off the table so that capital won’t be taxed. That is the simplest truth that has the most effect in economic policy today.

We the people – the vast majority of income earning Americans are in effect having our taxes funneled (legally) directly to the wealthy in thousands of lobbyist engineered ways – so we are all losing a substantial percentage of the benefits of our work – which is paid to the govt in taxes and is (legally) skimmed by the wealthy.

It takes the best tax law attorneys and accountants to subvert the code and they are paid far more by the wealthy, than by the rest of Americans – so they are winning. Straight and simple.

It needs to be fixed.

^^^ Triumph, that last post was so good. That’s where people go wrong in analyzing who pays taxes. They take a skin-deep look at the tax structure and conclude that the wealthy are paying a greater percentage of their income in tax because we have a progressive tax system. But what they don’t understand is that the wealthy are paying less as an overall percentage of their WEALTH, as opposed to income. If anyone has read the book, “The Millionaire Next Door” which I recommend everyone read, one of their key tactics in becoming rich is getting as much of their wealth untaxable as possible. Now I realize we all hate paying taxes and I don’t fault anyone for that, but what happens unfortunately is that as the wealthy accumulate more wealth, it gets mixed into politics and starts corrupting the system to work to their advantage. The war is a perfect example. Billions upon billions upon billions of dollars being given in no-bid contracts to companies that have close ties to Bush and Cheney. Anywhere else in the world, there’d be outrage, in America, we re-elect the guy again because of his “Christian morals and values”. It’s enough to make you sick and wonder what the hell is wrong with our average Americans.
