Man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.

In Defense of Doing Nothing.

The lifestyle of the chronic worker, the influencer-freelancer-hustler, whose every feeling and experience of joy and peace is commodified, is sold on this same idea of freedom: not freedom from work, but freedom from the temptation ever to stop working.
