Reading about who still needs to show up for work in times of pandemic, reminds of @davidgraeber & Bullshit Jobs. We are experiencing how our societies would collapse if the nurses, waste collectors & teachers stopped showing up for work
We place capitalism in quarantine only to discover:
- The paramount importance of all maintenance work: transport, logistics, cleaning, health work, etc.
- The radical uselessness of financiers, consultants & vultures
- The absolute centrality of informal/family/support networks
