My post was provocative, but it wasn't even trolling, much less spam.
And what does the percentage of folks with jobs have to do with anything?
I happen to believe that being an employee has a great impact on your life and attitudes in many ways. Having to spend 5 days a week, 50 weeks a year at work certainly removes any chance of being a hippy.
I speak from personal experience! I have eliminated regular employment from my life several times. It's good for the soul, although not necessarily for your marriage. I lived in National Forests and State Parks and lived off the land, and spent months in Nepal and India in the seventies, devoted most of my energies to playing in a rock band in the early eighties, and left my job and spent years consulting a couple of times in the nineties.
I've been married 20 years, have two kids entering college, and a substantial mortgage, so I'm back at the employee game again. But I don't take it seriously.
I think way too many people are very afraid to "risk their careers" and do something adventurous. That's really a shame, because life has so much more to offer than a career. Plus, a job makes you very time conscious, clocks and calendars rule your life.
Kudos to you, WhatIs
Maybe some people like regular employment. There's nothing wrong with loving your job and taking it seriously. Employment is necessary for our society to function.
I work at a fruit stand, It's lovely.
>>Employment is necessary for our society to function<<
That is true. A capitalist consumerist society would not exist without employees.
There are alternatives, however.
It is good to be productive. That does not mean you have to have a job.
I stand by my statement that you can't be a hippy and a career employee at the same time.
Are you sure you're not the main item for sale at that fruit stand?
I walked right into that one. Fucker. Nah, I really should turn the place into "the fruit stand, gay singles bar" Capitolism yay!
Whatis: Great philosophy.
I intend to become a writer (freelance kind of) and may well in the spirit of Kerouac wander around being inspired. Of course until then I'll need a 'proper job' to help fund my degree. Bit of a bitch but worth it in the end.
As hippy is a state of mind then it can fit into a career. Just needs some thinking outside the box.
You can turn it into that type of bar in that movie "Coyote Ugly"!!!
Then I guess I won't be a hippie. Oh darn. What a loss. I've always wanted to limit myself to a label...
My god you have just inspired me more than any other person in my life. *brushes tear from eye*
My work is done here people...........CARRY ON!
You should come to the opening of my gay bar; Coyote Bumugly.
Yeah, all the cowboys could do body shots from my bung hole!
