‘The profound spiritual violence of doing a task that you secretly suspect doesn’t need to be done.. we have this very weird idea that work ennobles us’ https://srslywrong.com/podcast/ep-153-bullshit-jobs-w-david-graeber/…
‘and this is the profound spiritual violence: that of knowing that one is spending her life in nothing, that of feeling compelled to hide it, and that of ending up in denial (with the obvious reaction against those who threaten such denial).
