Why is it we, in the modern society, place so much emphasis and self worth on what we do? Why are jobs so important in fulfilling our lives? I'm not talking the obvious monetary benefits. There are no longer visible ladders in society preventing those of lower stations from mingling with those of higher stations, but we still look down our noses at those that aren't as "good" as we are. Why?
I was having a conversation with someone the other day on face book and we were discussing AMC which was taken off the air. One of the ladies commented she didn't know what that it was and after a brief explanation she said something to the effects of "wow really? I don't see day time tv, i have a job..." Wow really? You think you're better than us because you work during the day?
How many other people have this same mentality? What is the purpose of demeaning people? What benefit is there to it? So you can feel better about yourself? How many people in this world are lonely because of off-hand comments like that? And the most important question- how many times have I belittled someone like that because I was ignorant?
