I really wish we could separate this idea that things are only worth doing if they make you a living.

But then I'd also like to separate the idea that you have to do something in order to make a living too.

@craigmaloney I struggle with the latter. My upbringing says everyone needs to pull their weight. Then I'm thinking, but if all the weight is being pulled, and there isn't enough work for everybody... WTF is going on? Machines are stealing the weight-pulling, the rich are trying to eliminate more weight-pulling and want to reap the benefits of doing *less* work? Seems like we need to spread that around somehow.

@craigmaloney Way more complicated than that, but I lack the character, etc.

@CarlCravens No worries. I think I get the gist, and I think you're right.
