Capitalism Brain - Poem

Capitalism Brain says
Workaholism
Is the highest virtue
And being a hard worker
Is the second.

Capitalism Brain says
Laziness
Is the greatest sin.

Capitalism Brain says
Enjoying life
Is a waste of time
That could be better spent
Working.

Capitalism Brain says
No matter how much you got done today
It was not
Enough.

Capitalism Brain says
The only productivity
Is effort
Put towards
Earning a paycheck

Capitalism Brain says
The appearance of productivity
Is more important
Than actual
Productivity.

Capitalism Brain says
That your contribution
To society
Is your income
And anyone
Who isn't financially independent
Is worse
Than worthless.

Capitalism Brain says
You're leeching from society
If you gain from others' work
Through taxes
But it's just smart
If you gain from others' work
Through dividends.

Capitalism Brain says
The cure for loneliness
Is spending money.

Capitalism Brain says
You have to buy your way into community
That the only activities to do together
Are the ones you pay for
And that interactions
Come at a price.

Capitalism Brain says
Be like everyone else
Be like no one else
Follow all the trends
Either by mimicry
Or avoidance

Capitalism Brain says
You are an economic unit
And being Human
Is failure.
