Bokuto: Well, of course, there are plenty of times that fails and they just slam the ball down. Akaashi: That happens quite often with you, Bokuto-san. Bokuto:Akaaaashi! You’re supposed to say, “that’s not true” there! […] Spiking doesn’t just involve slamming the ball into the ground. If you are calm, you’ll see how to attack. Akaashi: Oh, that’s not true, Bokuto-san. Bokuto:Akaaaashi, you’re late!!
We have a problem as a society. Our goal is efficiency, but the result of efficiency by definition is that it takes less work to get things done. And less work to get things done means there is less work to do. If there is less work, there are less jobs. Progress destroys jobs.
Another result of efficiency is an explosion in population. The easier things get, the less of us die. More and more of us, less and less jobs.
Humanity’s drive toward betterment has resulted in two things: more people and less jobs. None of our choices were wrong, exactly. Each was made with good intentions, hell maybe every choice was correct. The problem wasn’t the choices but the values. Survival is no longer a value, because survival has become easy. It used to be old people were revered, because they had outrun death longer than anyone else. Now old people are just the ones who waited around too long. Anyone can become an old person with a little luck. It’s not a collapse of morals that has diminished our respect for the elderly. It’s an inevitable response to the changing meaning of age.
Since we no longer value survival and age, we need some other way to rank people. Because we need that, we need some people to be worth more than others. We have many ways to do that, but here’s one: we value wealth. The ones who own more are better. Not for any reason, just because. And since theoretically but rarely actually in practice, the way toward owning more is work, work has become a measure of someone’s value, second only to money. A lazy rich person is better than a poor person with a good job, but a poor person with a job is better than a poor person without a job. Ranked first by wealth, then by worth. And so, that is the situation: There are more of us, there are less jobs, and we value people by whether they have a job or not.
What happens when you have a world where it is impossible for people to create value for themselves in the eyes of society? What happens when we judge people for the inevitable outcome of our collective actions?
I don’t know. But together we’re finding out.
