Review: Work

After the promise of nursery school and university, with school admittedly a low point in life's otherwise admirably proficient handling of its subject matter, work is disappointing. Without it, capitalism would be a joyous parade of lattes and sitcoms.

Prominent Jew Jesus Christ pointed out that the birds of the field barely lift a finger, yet God provides for them. This reminds me of the theory in a book I once read that human beings are bad bees, working off our karmic debt before ascending the spiritual ladder to eventually be reborn back in the hive.

On breakfast TV this morning, Richard Gere told presenter Natasha Kaplinsky that "the real work is the work of the heart". Stop cavorting with J-Lo, Richard, she didn't reply, and get a proper job.

Work: 3 out of 10
