Average is Over

Labour and Capital are very different. Labour is inseparable from our humanity. We feel a connection to the things we do. The people we work with. The environment we are in. Labour is wrapped up in the story of who we are. Capital isn't. It is the cold engine. Capital allows the transition of the power source. Forced labour is slavery. Free, shared and meaningful Labour becomes love, life and art. Used properly, Capital can be a muse. Labour as work for money ties us to the limits of our biology. Ties us to average. Labour as work for flow releases us into the story. The sharing economy. The gift economy. Where average is over.
