I wake up everyday
    #1731283 - 07/20/03 12:42 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I wake up everyday at 6 am and work at a factory until 3 pm. I see crowds of people begin working at the sound of a buzzer and take their brakes at the sound of a buzzer. In between, they scramble around like ants. In this factory, we print bullshit stickers, signs, and decals. The work is totally uncreative and uninspiring. The presses make a very loud noise, it is very hot, and it is a very dirty environment. It is such a depressing job. Every day that I work, I cannot help but wonder how humanity arrived at such a point. I understand that it is the product of capitalism, but I do not understand why people spend 40 hours a week doing silly things like this. What is even more depressing is that most of the people I work with are immigrants from another country and will gladly tell you that this is easy work and that the pay is good.


I think that work is killing the human spirit.

I think humans are letting work kill the human spirit. I used to wash dishes, and I enjoyed it. I mean, hell, I'd PREFER being home, playing bass guitar to work on my future occupation, but I decided I'd never let washing dishes bother me. Its only work if you let it be work.
And I bet the pay is good. That's why you are there in the first place. Want people to hand out all your money to you? I think that'd kill the human spirit (ever hear of Comnunism)?
Peace.

Suppressed creativity dims the human spirit.
Work is work, if you don't enjoy it try and find one you enjoy. You can be creative in any environment, it's about your attitude more than anything. Find your inspiration.
At this point there's not much we can do about capitalism and this joke of a society unless we start a revolution. So let's start a revolution. Start with yourself, move outwards.

I have nothing against working towards goals or just work in general, but I work at a plant that makes Bush re election stickers and other stickers that just get thrown away. I think that it is meaningless work. I sometimes wish that everybody in America would jus collectivelly not show up one monday, telling their corporate masters to fuck off, that they're not going to make them rich anymore. Instead, they are going to join forces and work together to end human suffering.

Yeah.. the bullshit parade can only go on for so long before it is revealed for what it truly is.

If you want to make some meaningful stickers you can make some for my band  :grin:... we can help the revolution.

You got a band, man? I'm interested in hearing, most definitely (I remember you saying you like IN FLAMES and the lot...). What do you play?

I'll check that out tomorrow, heading to bed right now.
I play bass as well, actually. And the whole band and the road to the top bit is my undying desire. Besides the fact that you have a lot more knowledge into the spirituality an philosophy thing than me, we sort of have a lot in common. Anyways, off to the land of no limitations.
Peace.

I have not captured what I am trying to say in my post. Let me try to rephrase. I work with a very intelligent man who has taken a five year sabatical from college (or he dropped out.) His job is in an unairconditioned warehouse (105 degrees 8 hours a day) and he counts out pieces of material like 18 x 24 white vinyl or 16 x 27 static clear so that other people can print pictures of bunny rabbits holding up their middle fingers on them. He has to do this if he wants to eat.

FUCK THIS
FUCK THIS
FUCK THIS

I do something very, very similar. Damn vinyl. I get relief by connecting with others, deeply and spiritualy. This message board is part of my spiritual healing. People are good. And it won't be this way forever..you must see that. This is temporary...this is all an illusion. A false reality. But reality nonetheless. Use what you got.

The thing is though, Every one I know hates their job, Every one I know is not happy with their lives. I think there needs to be an extra day of the week where you don't work, you smoke pot, listen to tool and bill hicks, and then you go to a lake and watch the reflection of the sunset and realize that life is too beatiful to waste collecting green pieces of paper with pictures of dead presidents on them. Then we would not have this problem

Here is what someone who has worked in a BOEING plant for the past 25 years...

The corporate globalists are taking all the money.
The blue colar jobs are gone, so enjoy it while you have one.
The chinese get 60 cents an hour.
Our pay equivalates to 50$ an hour including lawsuits on the company.

There are however some factory jobs that will always be available, but the union is dying, fast at that.

Why can't people live hand to mouth, growing food, building a log cabin in a few weeks, and living off the land. Sure, you may not live as long and have all of the creature comforts, but fuck creature comforts, and, in the imrortal words of Robert Pirsig, "People live longer just to live longer."

FUck blue collar
Fuck white collar
Fuck us and them rhetoric
Fuck Owners, Managers, Supervisors, and entry levels

My brother found a good solution.. start your own business!!! nwcoast.com
anyways... Ever had a marketable idea? I know functioning in the cookie-cut society is a bitch, but you can find your way through entreprenuership. I hope one day that i can market some of my ideas but you need lotsa money to get your idea out there.

Well all else I'm going to say on this matter is that 1:things are not always as they seem and 2:corporate society will get the smack in the face that is long overdue. And for that matter all of reality will get a new reality check.

Because not everyone has this knowledge, if everyone lived off the land then there would be no land to live off of (due to the quantity of humans; I know there are more insects than human etc, but the size of a human and the health needs are greater than insects), in America you need to buy the land in order to live off it-almost paradoxal, except its how it is rather than how it shouldn't be.

I'm sure EVERY hard worker has had those thoughts, but they also realize the restrictions imposed by history and choose to conform.

Its sad really. I hope to eventually garner enough wages to get some Canadian land to live with nature.
