This Week… work, sarcasm, whistleblowing, other


Do you hate people? 

I dont hate themI just feel better when theyre not around. Charles Bukowski

“We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living.

We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors.

The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.”

Buckminster Fuller

“Whistleblowers, and responsible media outlets that work with them, play an important role in society. We need powerful agencies to combat criminal activity online but any powerful agency needs checks and balances and, based on recent revelations, it seems the current system of checks and balances has failed,” Tim Berners-Lee?

I can’t say many things without sounding sarcastic, it’s really annoying.
