SUCCESS IS BROKEN
In 4th grade I saw a conflict b/t being who I was and being “SUCCESSFUL.”
Study hard Get a degree Get a job Work hard Make money

If people are so happy, why are so many, so sick and tired?
And why are so many angry?

And we used them to replace horses so we could farm with less people

fabric of the US
And a new business structure was invented, called the
J. O. B.
All this change even lead to political reconfigurations

So now that J.O.B.’s are going A.W.A.Y.
