Burnt out: is the exhausting cult of productivity finally over?
Cue complaints of long working hours, stepping off the treadmill to do what really matters like volunteering etc.
Which isn’t productivity, that’s production. Productivity is the opposite – increased productivity is more production in less time. The cult of production would indeed mean working ever longer hours for The Man and money in order to lead an increasingly consumerist lifestyle in this monstrous wasteland of late-stage capitalism. The cult of productivity would be to get that shit out of the way in the least time possible in order to free up more of life for the things that matter like friends, family, community and watching the tweeting birdies fly by.
Jeez, can’t these people even understand the language?
