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..
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
so why does the myth of free speech persist? for the same reason americans perpetuate the myth that we’ve moved beyond racism, or the myth that our econ is in better shape than ever before: those who benefit from these myths have a vested interest in making sure we still believe them..
