hocus-You seem to be able to express experiences that I find hard to express clearly.Many who work at corporate or government jobs are accomplishing nothing of value with their lives. I'm not criticizing them; they have to pay the bills, and they are not hurting anyone. But it just doesn't follow to say that because someone will pay you a lot of money to do something, that the something is an activity of value to the world. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't.I think the non-productivity of my worklife was the cincher for retiring. I tried to change my projects, and even changed jobs, but soon whatever I was doing was of marginal use to society as a whole. Now I work a hotline and feel much more productive, though unpaid in a monetary sense. It's too bad I had to retire to feel productive.arrete
