ca⋅reer {kuh-reer}

–noun
1. A long period of servitude in exchange for operating capital and the promise of financial security and much needed health care coverage on release; golden handcuffs.
2. The mistakenly desired outcome of 16+ years of education.
3. An affliction whose symptoms are loss of life & liberty, general purpose misery, and resentment towards those who are unaffected.
4. A euphemism for 'professional labour camp'; these 'camps' are required to support capitalism's unsustainable drive for never ending growth.
Each of the professions means a prejudice. The necessity for a career forces every one to take sides. We live in the age of the overworked, and the under-educated; the age in which people are so industrious that they become absolutely stupid.

- Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)
