To hate work is to hate survival and to hate life itself. Every simpering wimp who thinks its the duty of the rest of us to support him should be thrown off the dole and left to find out the value of labor on his own.

Go to any social media feed today and you’ll find an endless array of zennials entering adulthood who are discovering that they are indeed expected to work, struggle, sacrifice, and make their way up the ladder of life like 99% of all human beings. The next generation is finding out, slowly but surely, that they will not be YouTube celebrities or Instagram influencers or Big Tech executives; they will not be raking in easy money or be showered in gratification. Many of them have stacked up sizable college loan debts in exchange for degrees with minimal demand. Even if they have a legitimate goal they will have to work hard to achieve it.
Reality is hitting younger Americans like a freight train and they are enraged. In response, many of them are sadly turning to leftist movements like the “anti-work movement” and the “quiet quitting” movement in retaliation. While the Reddit born anti-work movement has slowly faded in the past six months, the overall agenda continues on in other forms.
There has been a rising narrative among young people regarding skilled labor vs unskilled labor. Their position? That there is no such thing as unskilled labor and that workers need to be handed a “living wage” no matter their level of contribution. Either that, or they need to stop working altogether while others pay their way. If they don’t get what they want, they plan to burn the economy to the ground.
That kind of sentiment sounds like insanity to anyone that understands free markets (or reality), but to naive young adults with visions of immediate success, it might sound like wisdom. They have been tricked into thinking that the laws of supply and demand no longer apply to labor, but they do. Here are some questions any person should ask themselves when they stumble upon that internal existential crisis of career and future. Are you actually being “oppressed”, or are you being paid exactly what you are worth and it’s making you feel inadequate?
Here’s a piece of satire, but it hits the nail on the head.

Yea and when you do work they pay you like shit, bosses treat you like shit, at work all day every day working and servicing the elites, never see family and no time for other values in life. And because I smoke herb now and then it limits my jobs because of drug tests., herb has no effect on my work abilities.
But hay James Shaw climate minister(just 1 example) and all these system indoctrinated robots gets nice salary package and all the perks and benefits, yet his work is meaningless and is living of the labor of others.
People need balance in life. Seems even during middle ages people more balance…The upshot: Medieval peasants worked less, had more free time, and were guaranteed more holidays with their family than you.
There were labor-free Sundays, and when the plowing and harvesting seasons were over, the peasant got time to rest, too. In fact, economist Juliet Shor found that during periods of particularly high wages, such as 14th-century England, peasants might put in no more than 150 days a year.
But most of us are in debt by a corrupted banking system which helps no one but a select few.
It’s never been easier to go work for yourself, then you can please yourself how you do it , how often and what you do in your free time.
