I am still working on the weekly article. It’ll be ready by Sunday, I hope. In the meantime, I’ll leave you with this photo from Incheon airport and this quote from Erich Fromm’s Art of Loving:

Modern man has exceedingly little self-discipline outside of the sphere of work. When he does not work, he wants to be lazy, to slouch or, to use a nicer word, to “relax.”

This very wish for laziness is largely a reaction against the routinization of life. Just because man is forced for eight hours a day to spend his energy for purposes not his own, in ways not his own, but prescribed for him by the rhythm of the work, he rebels and his rebelliousness takes the form of an infantile self-indulgence.

More on Sunday. Have a great weekend!
