    On the one hand, it is important to question "what are we doing, anyway" often in order to make conscious decisions and actions. On the other hand, we all find ourselves in a specific capitalist paradigm—a game that has certain rules. Fortunately or unfortunately, in order to participate in a society, everyone (especially in societies with wealth and relative stability) has to play at least by some of the rules.

    Of course, this doesn't preclude one in participating in or lending their expertise to causes that seek to change or overthrow parts of the machine you find objectionable. Finding your niche where you can do what you feel is right and still practice your craft (and eat) is one of the most burning questions of modern post-industrial society.

    I hear "Bullsh*t Jobs" is a really interesting book, but I haven't read it yet.
