On Public Speaking

When you’re alone, in the privacy of your own home, you don’t have to act, to put up a front. You are free to be yourself, no matter what that self is. When you’re at a job, in addition to performing the job’s laborious functions, you are paid to be socially presentable. To act in a certain way as to upkeep a good image to the company and its employers.

In this sense when an individual has to interact within society, with other individuals, they are “working” in the sense that they are not allowed to be themselves fully. The individual must “act” within a certain context. To be acceptably socially fake.

And as a worker, you are not being paid for your labor. So in a society that values capitalistic philosophy, that honors money above ethics and morals, why “work” when you’re not getting paid? Something to think about.
