Feed Your Head: Revealing Iconography  
… I have an icon for "pointless, repetitive, soul-destroying work", but not one for "vital, productive, fulfilling work".

After thinking about it for a minute or two, I'd guess that might be because we can all agree on types of work that are soul-destroying, but our ideas of what sorts of jobs are satisfying all differ. That said:

How many people have vital, productive, fulfilling work? :p

It's bad enough that most people don't, that they're in silly service industry jobs that, if they all vanished tomorrow, we would likely find ourselves better off than before (oh, we'd have fewer things but more time do that, y'know, vital, productive and fulfilling work) but when I have friends who try to tell me how much they love their banal, soul-crushing work. That they're so enthralled by the system of labor that enslaves that they can't imagine a different kind of life, one WITHOUT that kind of busy work and to save a shred of their dignity they imagine it must be important.

Ain't these times we live in grand?
