Anti Wage-Slavery Pro-Freedom Quotations Of The Week 1627-1629

The situationist game is distinguished from the classic notion of games by its radical negation of the element of competition and of separation from everyday life. On the other hand, it is not distinct from a moral choice, since it implies taking a stand in favor of what will bring about the future reign of freedom and play.
Guy Debord
Report on the Construction and on the International Situationist Tendency's Conditions of Organization and Action

in 1930, economist John Maynard Keynes predicted that by the end of the century technology would have advanced sufficiently that in countries such as the UK and the US we’d be on 15-hour weeks. “In technological terms, we are quite capable of this. And yet it didn’t happen. Instead, technology has been marshalled, if anything, to figure out ways to make us all work more. Huge swaths of people, in Europe and North America in particular, spend their entire working lives performing tasks they believe to be unnecessary. The moral and spiritual damage that comes from this situation is profound. It is a scar across our collective soul. Yet virtually no one talks about it.
David Graeber

 The goal of the future is full unemployment, so we can play. that's why we have to destroy the present politico-economic system.
Arthur C. Clarke
