Take pride in your work.
What a great concept to instill into the minds of a population whose task is developing an Industrialized Nation.
It worked brilliantly...for a while.
Now, in a Post-Industrialized World, the left-over Homo Sapiens, still proud of their work, bite the bullet, while pride and boastfullness over not working, not providing anything tangible... gleaning the remains, if you will, becomes the way of the land...can you say, "Homo Technus" Rules?
As long as we continue forward under these conditions, we will never muster the gumption necessary to accomplish anything.
NOTE...that's some extra raw material...
I don't even know what it means...yet...something to do with a weakening trend...
By way of clarification...old timers around the Gloucester Waterfront could often be heard to say, "It's a great life if ya don't weaken."
Over many years around said waterfront, I've worked with a number of strong, capable, vital individuals in their 80's, and even 90's.
Pride in their work is the one constant.
I don't think Humanity can afford to let something like that escape our grasp.
We are struggling enough right now, don'tcha think.
