a reply to marxism

with a translation in Russian by Yuri Golitinski

"For me, one of our major un-necessary problems is our dependence on the verb 'to work' and the noun 'worker'. This causes great psychological, political, and sociological pain and confusion. In essence the verb means to use, spend or burn-up energy and the noun indicates someone doing this spending.

But this verb does not state whether this energy is being used joyfully or painfully. This is a key question. This is why I believe we have a solvable and un-necessary problem. It is in fact a nonproblem. We demand too much of this verb. It cannot serve two masters: joy and pain. I contend that it is this confusion which is largely responsible for global (and personal) frustration and anxiety."
