sinclair perpetuation law

upton sinclair get a man


so much wondering …

about how many (well-intentioned, good-hearted, in service of others) people aren’t imagining a day when what they do.. becomes irrelevant. and so by that..

they/we perpetuate..

the disease (or whatever) that our life’s mission is all about curing.

ie: in love w the job.. the feeling of helping.. so much that you can’t see a time when you no longer have that job/helping role.


from Lewis Mumford’s myth of machine:


the more power entrusted to organization man, the fewer qualms he has against using it..t
