4 july 2020 independence day
the fourth of July when the north Americans celebrate independence day when they rid themselves from British colonial rule . . . and when i made a much smaller jump out of full time employment . . . namely ‘work’ . . . (or having a job)
in this context we can look to the beginning of specialisation and all the wrong things that i believe result from being employed . . . with which idea i try to begin political freedom as i understand it . . .
i would hope to improve the logic or the illogic of that . . . one cannot do this quickly or easily as the whole idea of paid work is full of contradictions and social mistakes (according to my thoughts) . . .
still inspired by the idea that anyone is free to give up work though not without dreadful inconvenience and difficulty . . . as Thoreau did and got himself in prison for one day which symbolically at least made him a free person . . .
that’s enough for the moment or it becomes work . . . i would stop . . . no?
