The pleasure of work is open to anyone who can develop some specialised skill, provided that he can get satisfaction from the exercise of his skill without demanding universal applause.
- Bertrand Russell
Basically we need skills to pay the bills or we become a cog in someone else's grasp for freedom.

Quote:
Life is nothing but a competition to be the criminal rather than the victim.
- Bertrand Russell
This is how I see most "work", sure it is possible for a few to escape the duality but only through acquiring skill. Otherwise...

Quote:
Work is of two kinds: first, altering the position of matter at or near the earth's surface relative to other matter; second, telling other people to do so.
- Bertrand Russell
In its present form capitalism will always create "victims" out of the system's insistence and dependence on subjugation of the lower levels. This also makes me think the "living wage" is a fallacy because those at the bottom of the hierarchy will almost always be "victims".

That said...

If all our happiness is bound up entirely in our personal circumstances it is difficult not to demand of life more than it has to give.
- Bertrand Russell
We have to find happiness outside of the way our materialist society dictates, being around nature being one of the best. /hippy

Can we create a capitalism that allows genuine chance of reward for the hardworking at the bottom or will it always be a case of carrots on sticks and a game of musical chairs?
