i don’t think the phenomenon of bullshit jobs is supposed to make you do some self-examination of how much your job contributes to society. like if it does that’s great, lucky for you, but the entire problem is that a significant part of society has to do things that are completely pointless in order to be allowed to live. it’s a systemic criticism. it seems to me like a very silly and fundamentally christian reaction to take a systemic criticism and turn it into a ruler with which determine your own guilt or lack thereof. that’s not the point.

It's 8:00 pm on the last day of the month so here is the second #DTMWaGL for February, it is called BLACK HEARTED KILLER and I think I thought harder about the plot of this movie than anyone involved in making it https://dtmwagl.substack.com/p/black-hearted-killer-dtmwagl-25
There is an isolated town called Vulcan on the border of Kentucky and West Virginia and they needed a bridge. But neither state nor the feds would build one. So the mayor wrote the Soviet Union to help. They didn't help build it, but they sent reporters that made it an international story. An hour after the USSR reporters visited, the West Virginia government committed funds to build the bridge.
