Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
well said...

in a nutshell, do we have the cultural and intellectual curiosity to support a life lived without the dignity of work -as we knew it.

in 2 generations i've seen the shift between one's work being a lifelong choice, with massive implications for one's sense of identity, destiny, andsocial continuity, to a free for all clever-clever slippery-monkey grabfest, to a redimensionising one's balance between work and leisure, and increasingly seeking satisfaction, identity and self-actualisation outside the work place, rather than from inside it.

this inversion can sometimes follow through to the point where what starts as a relaxing hobby, can flower into the main driver for self-expression and even financial success.

that is the greatest adaptation one can achieve and exemplify, i believe.
