We are being told all the time how great it is that Xis creating jobs ,politicians want us to vote for them so they promise more jobs . We are toldit is a good thing to get mothers away from the family and into the factory . Even universities are making ability to get a job the basis of their course's . Is the meaning and purpose of life ---to be a worker ---Why bother producing robots or other labour saving technology if in the end work is the objective? Does the human have a potential to be more than a donkey when freed from the drudgery of the workplace? When does humanity get the time to think when all our hopes and fears revolve around work ?
