The forever strike: Quitting this world and working on the next one.


“What I want out of an economy is the same thing I want out of society, which is the same thing I want out of life – some kind of meaning. Some kind of thing that I can call happiness. That often has to do with spending time with friends and family, building social connections, exploring, failing, finding things out – those are a lot of things you aren’t allowed to do on the job.”

Live from Switzerland, Ed Sutton examines life during worktime, takes a break from leftist daydreams of economic/environmental doomsday scenarios and suggests a more productive and radical thought experiment: Everybody Quits Day.
