Day 27: How much should humans work?

Ooh here’s a question to get your thinking engine going.

How much should humans work?

There’s a lot to consider:

  • What we’ve evolved to be: energy conservation, etc. etc.
  • The Puritan work ethic and where this bullshit of Western capitalism came from
  • Colonialism
  • The resistance of rest
  • What work even IS

So, there you go. A prompt with a bunch of sub-prompts.

Set a timer and find out what you think about humans and work.
