Things That Are Absolutely Terrible For The Economy
Becoming a successful writer on Medium
Imagine people accomplishing the dream of becoming a paid writer. That doesn’t sit right with me, and I hope you feel the same way.
Are we living in the 19th century? When did “writers” become a thing again?
Do you want to give advice for a better life? How pretentious. “How I Quit My 9–5 job And You Can Too” articles? You sicken me. Let’s have a conversation about robots, making money, stocks, technology, and how great Elon Musk is doing instead.
Imagine people turning their hobbies into full-time jobs. That would cause so much economic pain. Agony, even.
I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, on the contrary! You can’t leave the workforce. We need the availability of workers and employees, for the sake of capitalism. You complement the economy.
So don’t be selfish.
Fathers going therapy
Learning how to have a better relationship with their kids and wife? Healing past trauma so they can be good for their children? I mean, it’s not like we desperately want dads who play board games, read bed stories and give spontaneous hugs. Honestly, we have the internet (and mom) to help ourselves.
Dads going to therapy is unhinged. Not only are they allocating time to something low-key draining, but they are failing society and hence, the economy.
How are kids going to learn the value of hustling if not watching their dads going to work 24/7? They’ll be fine at home with mom. She can teach them the cheesy side of life if they crave that nonsense.
No remarkable man on this planet has gone to therapy. Brad Pitt is not remarkable, don’t get me started.
Do you know what’s beneficial for families? A prosperous economy. And how do we get that? Hustling dads.
Introverts are straight-up bad for the economy.
Yes, they could be online shopping and paying for streaming subscriptions while at home. But it’s not enough. Think about local businesses, for instance. They need people who are out and about making spontaneous and unnecessary purchases in their stores.
Go out. Get some cash. Spend it enthusiastically.
Interacting with your paternal sister
The sister of your father doesn't do small talk. That doesn’t exist in their world. They need one to four hours of your time to talk (usually to offend you, but still).
It is unfortunate but, unless it’s a business meeting, one can’t squander four hours having a conversation. It sounds unethical.
They distract us from making money, being productive, and meeting deadlines.
I’m sorry, auntie, but these kinds of conversations are not very capitalist friendly.
Aliens taking over
If aliens finally decide to come to Earth and interact with us, great. I bet their technology could lead us to astounding levels of economic growth. However, we need to be aware they might want to take over, and that doesn’t look too bright.
We would have to reclaim our system back through war, and you and I know the drawbacks of war.
Yes, we would face human loss, but think about the expensive infrastructure that would end up in shambles. The worst thing, though, would be the normal economic activity being disrupted indefinitely.
Additionally, we don’t know how much time we’ll need to recover, taking into account it would be the first time we grapple with extraterrestrial creatures.
Our holy economy has been extensively damaged after 2020, and we cannot afford to make more mistakes.
Few people are aware of the fact that the economy is really important. It is our duty to keep it healthy for as long as we can.
Here I’m doing my part.
I hope you do yours.
