Two clever fellows at Occupy Wall Street–technically, Occupy Bloomington–performed this skit, titled, “Life Under Capitalism”:
Screaming “work, work, work” evidently passes for insightful drama in Bloomington, and given the Fall, work is certainly burdensome.
Then again, God created us to work. We often find a measure of personal satisfaction in our work. And at the level of the mundane, we must work to purchase our clothing, food, shelter–not to mention the clothing, food, and shelter of our children.
And of course, we must “work, work, work” whether we’re living under capitalism, socialism, or any hybrid economic arrangement.
But recognizing that fact doesn’t make for compelling drama, at least not according to Occupy Bloomington. Would you be intrigued by performance art titled, “Life Under Each and Every Existing Economic Arrangement”? Me neither. Then again, I wasn’t a fan of this particular video either.
