You don't have to enmesh yourself physically and mentally within the capitalist death cult to work here...but it helps :)
I’ve also always found a lot of power in completely rejecting everything anyone thinks or says and just assuming any source of authority is necessarily the stupidest voice. It’s the fuck-everyone voice. In my head, I’m like, Well, fuck everyone. I’m gonna pursue the thing I’m actually really excited about. Because it’s my life and I only get one, and this is the thing I’m giving the world. I’m not gonna do it to please anybody else. Because people don’t even know yet what they want to read. To me, it’s about having integrity in the material and putting that above needing to please random people.
"...Structural violence creates lopsided structures of the imagination. Those on the bottom of the heap have to spend a great deal of imaginative energy trying to understand the social dynamics that surround them--including having to imagine the perspectives of those on top--while the latter can wander about largely oblivious to much of what is going on around them. That is, the powerless not only end up doing most of the actual, physical labor required to keep society running, they also do most of the interpretive labor as well."
David Graeber, The Utopia of Rules: On Technology, Stupidity, and the Secret Joys of Bureaucracy
Shit jobs tend to be blue collar and pay by the hour, whereas bullshit jobs tend to be white collar and salaried. Those who work shit jobs tend to be the object of indignities; they not only work hard but are also held in low esteem for that very reason. But at least they know they're doing something useful. Those who work bullshit jobs are often surrounded by honor and prestige; they are respected as professionals, well paid, and treated as high achievers—as the sort of people who can be justly proud of what they do. Yet secretly they are aware that they have achieved nothing, they feel they have done nothing to earn the consumer toys with which they fill their lives; they feel it's all based on a lie—as, indeed, it is.
