A piece about class: to the weaponized concept of laziness, and we all know by whom. We all love to work. No one is lazy. Humans are meant to work. If I say "I'm lazy," no I am not. I am tired, I am resting, I am poor. Taking a break IS work. You cannot convince me that I am not productive enough. Work and Laziness are social constructs, and we underestimate ourselves, because we can definitely change the definitions of both. So now, what other sloganeering tactics do you have? "Money cannot buy happiness"? Oh, absolutely it can. The rich just wanna keep the poor from rising up against them and those in power. Guess what, the jig is up. I had been forced to give my time and attention to work on things I don't care about, just to survive. Because if I don't... Death. When I say humans are meant to work, I'm talking about things they love. Doing things that make people feel alive - that's still work. But this time, the definition changes. Laziness does not exist. "Oh no, people just don't want to work nowadays." No, they just don't wanna put up with your deformed version of exploitative capitalism anymore. The toxic idea of contemporary productivity: constant labour. To keep the people busy. And if they're busy, they cannot think. They do not have time to question. They don't want to be accused of being lazy. They keep focusing on working to survive, so they can't focus on what they truly want.
