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 profession
s 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)
