Idleness.

July 22, 2008

Idleness is not a bad thing. Actually not even close. When I am idle I am most productive, even more so than when I am actually producing. If the utmost goal of a human is to achieve nothingness (buddhism), than doing nothing is as close as one can get to nothingness without trying. I know, it’s a beautiful thing.

I firmly believe the shortage of philosophers in america directly correlates to the protestant work ethic instilled into everyone at birth. (protestant or not) The protestant work ethic ensures that everyone has no time to think and anyone who dares to think is condemned. So please people, relax, be merry, and face it, your gonna die.
