Work

has come to be confused with
function
only because people have come to think
- distressfully for most -
that our only function
is work.

Auban,
Work is another addiction,maybe,far worse than the addiction to sex or other drugs such as alcohol.If you do not work then you are out of the system, you are considered a non human. What a world!

Yes, indeed - but it is surely activity that is the addiction - and work is attached to activity by the Big Bad People who rule the world morally as well as actually. Competitive "sport" also feeds the activity addiction. The whole culture is ADHD, which engenders (ADHD)² - so to speak.

Humans find it very hard to find a balance in their lives. We tend to exchange one addiction (or one hyperactivity) for another (e.g. constant meditation or opium catatonia), and lurch from one extreme to another.

We are the hyperactive species.
