from Bob Black:

Play is not the “suspension of consequences;” rather what is at issue is that the consequences, if any, are gratuitous.

You are what you do. If you do boring, stupid, monotonous work, chances are you’ll end up boring stupid and monotonous.

Socrates said that manual laborers make bad friends and bad citizens because they have no time to fulfill the responsibilities of friendship and citizenship.

Free time is mostly devoted to getting ready for work, going to work, returning from work, and recovering from work. free time is a euphemism for the peculiar way labor as a factor of production not only transports itself at its own expense to and from the workplace but also assumes primary responsibility for its own maintenance and repair.
