Does your job make a meaningful contribution to the world? In the spring of 2013, David Graeber asked this question in a playful, provocative essay titled “On the Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs”. It went viral. After a million online views in 17 different languages, people all over the world are still debating the answer.

  • Premise and theory ok....but it just drags on and on. PLUS a cringe-worthy narration.

This was a great listen, although a little tough to hear sometimes, consider I have a full-time bullshit job.

Only criticism is Ragland using accents and changing his pitch when quoting people sourced in the book.

Universal basic income!!!

In a manifesto that renders all previous attempts at political satire obsolete, The Chapo Guide to Revolution shows you that you don’t have to side with either the pear-shaped vampires of the right or the craven, lanyard-wearing wonks of contemporary liberalism. These self-described “assholes from the Internet” offer a fully ironic ideology for all who feel politically hopeless and prefer broadsides and tirades to reasoned debate.

This book and podcast has changed the way I view the world. It has attributed to a paradigm shift from viewing the world through the lens of capitalism to seeing a future where we can take care of everyone, have peace, and not worship incrementalists like obama, who just end up propping up the ruling class and perpetuating the atrocities of capitalism.

Also, it’s just enjoyable to point out the absurdities of the pundit, media and mainstream political class.

Chapo let’s go.
