The ABOLITION of WORK - Modern Economies are nothing but Slave Plantations: Un-Consent from Modern Slavery with this empowering Truth
March 9, 2014
Truth be told, I haven't actually read this article yet. I'm actually sitting here with Justin in Morocco now though and he says it's "solid gold," so I'll post and read it later ;) ~BK
This post is an absolute GEM to help us realize our modern systems of Business, Economy and life in general, are setup to ensure most of us work so that a small population does not have to. But rarely are you told the whole truth on the news, in your city counsel meetings or in your state senate.
In other words, we are sold a line of BS from modern society, wherein we feel obligated to work a job to "earn a living." While existing on Earth does require creative energy on your part, to think you must slave away at a passionless job for your entire life, so that MAYBE one day you will be able to finally do what you want is the "american dream" or "dream of modern society"; a scam meant to benefit a few at the expense of many.
The fact is, the vast majority of the population of Earth has bought into this system hook line and sinker; and the people who benefit are the sellers themselves.
But let me ask you, do you really feel like this dream will ever come true?
The sooner we Un-Consent from this farce, the sooner we can take up our FULL creative powers, and start living our highest passions right NOW. This will mean having to deprogram yourself, and others because as you begin acting within this new consciousness, you will challenge others who have accepted the old beliefs.
'Misery loves company' perfectly describes how people who have bought into the system, will attack you, give you guilt trips and generally try and make you feel like your abandoning your obligations and responsibilities. And this is why gaining key knowledge and understanding, the Intrinsic Knowledge, will empower you to transcend the old dependencies you have in others acceptance of you. For is it really true that the 7 billion people who live on earth are forever doomed to toil and debt slavery as the system will have us believe?
I have realized that there is no logical, or intuitive sense to 'earning a living' and moving into that consciousness was one of the most empowering experiences in my life.

That doesn't mean we have to stop doing things. It does mean creating a new way of life based on play; in other words, a ludicrevolution. By "play" I mean also festivity, creativity, conviviality, commensality, and maybe even art. There is more to play than child's play, as worthy as that is. I call for a collective adventure in generalized joy and freely interdependent exuberance. Play isn't passive. Doubtless we all need a lot more time for sheer sloth and slack than we ever enjoy now, regardless of income or occupation, but once recovered from employment-induced exhaustion nearly all of us [will] want [to] act. Oblomovism and Stakhanovism are two sides of same debased coin.
The ludic life is totally incompatible with existing reality. So much the worse for "reality," the gravity hole that sucks the vitality from the little in life that still distinguishes it from mere survival. Curiously—maybe not—all the old ideologies are conservative because they believe in work. Some of them, like Marxism and most brands of anarchism, believe in work all the more fiercely because they believe in so little else.
Liberals say we should end employment discrimination. I say we should end employment. Conservatives support right-to-work laws. Following Karl Marx's wayward son-in-law Paul Lafargue I support the right to be lazy. Leftists favor full employment. Like the surrealists—except that I'm not kidding—I favor full unemployment. Trotskyists agitate for permanent revolution. I agitate for permanent revelry.
