In life, there are crossroads that you must face. One crossroad, in particular, is your career path. Whether to get that high paying job or start your own business, a decision must be made. But do you really need a job? Here are a few reasons why you should never get a job.
- You only get paid when you work
Getting that permanent job and exchanging your time for money may seem like a good idea. There’s only one problem with it. You only get paid when you’re working. So unless you have been thoroughly brainwashed into thinking that’s reasonable and intelligent, you must always benefit from the fruits of your labour. Don’t your plants grow even when you aren’t tending to them?
2. Limited experience
You might take a job to gain experience. But when you get the job, one of the famous sayings that you are greeted with is, “We have been doing it like that for years, don’t change it.” Now, what real experience are you gaining from that? A handicapped one. You gain experience from living, regardless of whether you have a job or not, a job only gives you experience at that job. You can create your own genius because that’s how geniuses are made.
3. You have been institutionalized
Also known as learning how to be a good pet. Look around. Take a real good look. What do you see? Any free-minded human beings? Or caged robots?
How’s your obedience training coming along? Does your master reward your good behavior? Or did you get scolded in front of your colleagues today? Humans are not meant to be in cages.
4. Way too risky
Oh, the famous line, “Having a job brings security”. The myth. Social conditioning is truly amazing. Know anyone who got laid off recently? A permanent worker who never had a blemish on their record, whose job just became redundant? The idea that a job is the most secure way to generate income is just silly. Just think, someone can turn off all your income just by saying two words (“You’re fired”).
5. Loss of freedom
There is a lot that goes into taming a human being into an employee. The human independent will must be broken using policies. Sounds familiar? No? Take a look at your employee manual. It is filled with nonsensical rules and regulations that lead to the new employee becoming more obedient, fearing discipline from their superiors. For example, that extra earring that is barely visible at the top of your ear. Human Resources commanded you to remove it not so? Just one of the freedoms taken away from you.
