On the raise of bullshit jobs

"There are entire levels of people whose only real purpose seems to be putting together PowerPoint presentations for other people. Literally producing entertainment for others who spend most of their time consuming that entertainment."

So we're all becoming one giant entertainment industry.

Busywork, in general, pisses me off. Whether it's work or fun; like for example when I play a game, I hate mindless grinding or time-wasting things just so you can get to the "meat" of the activity.

It serves no purpose other than this bullshit outdated notion that you need to "work hard" and "earn" things so you somehow feel better that you wasted hours of mind-numbingly boring crap to see a result.

I have no idea where this mindset comes from, but it's high time it died out.
