The topic of employment is very dear to both me and Marin and that's why the book Bed of Procrustes by Nassim N. Taleb immediately resonated with me.
Not only due to the ideas that it's trying to communicate, but it's also written in a format that is easily digestible, broken down into separate thoughts as individual sentences.
Find below three of my favorites quotes on the topic of employment:
"There is no intermediate state between
ice and water but there is one between life
and death: employment."
"Karl Marx, a visionary, figured out that you
can control a slave much better by
convincing him he is an employee."
"Those who do not think that employment
is systemic slavery are either
blind or employed."
Don't get me wrong, I am a very happy employee (at my full-time day job), BUT only because I get to work on my business the other time (creating my future employer myself).
