Just think about how profoundly privileged the author of this dystopian book would have to be to write something like this without ever considering that the rich have been living lives as "the Absolved" for thousands of years, and for some reason live happy lives full of purpose. https://t.co/U7J9oElqZL
You don't even need to be rich to already be experiencing what it'd be like to start each day with your most basic needs covered. Look at those already receiving any kind of passive income. Starting higher up Maslow's 🔼 better enables pursuit of purpose.https://t.co/5L3AIjfrHO
The pursuit of survival does not provide purpose. Purpose is a higher order need. No one who is starving is worrying about what their purpose in life is. At that moment, their only purpose is finding food.
Is that humanity's purpose? To find food? To do nothing but survive? pic.twitter.com/nJYV7q7zqd
