This is a blog from some other site but it raises some interesting points … especially from a Western perspective.

There is a quiet revolution taking place in some academic circles. It seems as if people have finally woken up to the fact that as employees, we're being driven harder and harder in less satisfying jobs.

Now an anti-work-ethic is springing up. As Corrine Maier, a senior economist at Electricite de France  has noticed in her book 'Hello Laziness', we work to breaking point, doing pointless tasks in pointless roles where you can be replaced at ANY given time. She states that the work we are doing is largely pointless so maybe we should do as little as possible.

Let's face it, most of us are never gonig to be rich … most of us are in debt, so why not just enjoy the time we have rather than devote our lives to an employer who doesn't give a damn about us. You can't be an employee … nowadays you've got to be a 'dynamic team player', 'a self motivated induvidual' a 'giver of excellent client focus' and it's all rubbish so as far as I am concerned, it seems as if the slackers had it right all along.
